Eleven Paints Honored by the United States Eventing Association

The American Paint Horse Association (APHA) recently recognized 11 talented horses with All-Breed awards for their accomplishments in the United States Eventing Association's (USEA) competition. Awards were given for outstanding performances in events governed by USEA.

For an American Paint Horse to be eligible for an All-Breed Award, it must be registered with both APHA and USEA, and the rider must be a member of both organizations.

Awards are given in eventing's novice, training, preliminary, intermediate and advanced Levels.
