Yea... I have been. The breeder I got all my horses from is up there with some of my horses family... I was suppose to go.. but didnt make it =(

It has been very eye opening.

Cowgirl140ty 06-23-2010 02:05 PM

Yea. The breeder is a great friend of mine... I cant wait to see how she does.. with the minumized horses she took. I wish I could have afforded to take my horse. But Oh well.
Overall its a pretty decent association... I love the ACAP policy they have.

Not bad. I just wish they were easier to communicate with. They are not punctual in responding to emails.

Cowgirl140ty 06-23-2010 02:48 PM

Ha... no... that can take a while. If I have something important... I usually just call. Cause they do take awhile to email back.

Having never been to this show - or heck - even paid much attention to it other than look at the pretty results photos in the journal, is the turn out usually this light?

Cowgirl140ty 06-24-2010 03:02 PM

No... usually there are a lot more. But I know a lot of people who didnt go cause they cant afford to spend the entry fees... then the gas to get there, the stabling for 2 weeks, hotels for 2 weeks. Which is why I didnt go. Im in my own place this year... so rent and feed comes first. I have every intention of making it next year... I have already started saving up =)

The entry fees are crazy!!!! I can not believe they get that for ONE class. Is there prize money or just ribbons and trophies and such?

Silly question - do you have to qualify for Nationals?

Cowgirl140ty 06-24-2010 03:35 PM

It depends on how you place... if you get money.. unless its changed. I havent made it in a couple years.
I run there ACAP program... I never actually do Appaloosa shows... but with acap I can run NBHA and do my cutting and sortin and penning series... and all the points I get through them are recognized by the Appaloosa association. As long as I have points I can go.
So im not sure how they do it if you ride the actual club shows...
