Our Club Today
The Arizona Appaloosa Association (AAA) is a regional club in the Appaloosa Horse Club (ApHC). We were formed in the late 1950s to promote our Appaloosa horses. We continue to meet today to share our love for our horses and their breeding. Our club represents the diversity of the Appaloosa.
We provide ApHC sanctioned horse shows and social trail rides. We also enjoy hosting, helping and competing in other equestrian events to showcase our Appaloosas and club. At our ApHC sanctioned horse shows, our members can earn National points to qualify for the ApHC World show and towards ApHC awards. We have members in just about every discipline including trail, endurance, extreme, reining, gymkana, rodeo and hunter jumper. We have all levels of riders, some of our members are beginners and some show at National and World shows and win!
Our club-hosted events are dependent on volunteer help, member fellowship and our greatly appreciated sponsors for success. By relying on our members to orchestrate our events instead of hiring support staff, we grow closer to each other. We work and play hard and are rewarded by the growth and achievements of each member. Our year ends with an awards banquet to celebrate the accomplishments of our club members.
