Why would the AQHA allow classes for horses that are outcropped and, according to their rules of registration, not quarter horses (at least not correct ones, who could pass on the genes for more outcrops which they do not want) to compete? Many of the outcropped QHs out there have a paint parent (not all I'm sure! Don't flame me...) and therefore can most likely be registered paint and shown through the APHA circuit.
Maybe I'm totally off on that, someone is welcome to correct me nicely if I'm wrong.
In my eyes, if the horse can't be registered with an organization due to it's rules (in this case a paint with too much white who doesn't have a quarter horse parent cannot be registered AQHA) then no...they can't be shown, that's not unfair that's just the rules. Go show else where, like APHA or Pinto or and open show. If you'd like to show at AQHA buy an AQHA registered horse. (sorry that that comes across snarky in print, I'm not trying to be mean.)
