MOSCOW, IDAHO— The Appaloosa Horse Club (ApHC) has partnered with the Arabian Horse Association (AHA) to host the very first multi-breed National Endurance Championship Rides. This exciting collaborative event will be held September 24, 2016.
The ApHC looks forward to holding the eleventh Appaloosa National Championship Endurance Ride (ANCER) concurrently with the Arabian Horse Association Distance Nationals. This 50-mile ride is sanctioned by the American Endurance Ride Conference (AERC) and will begin at Frank’s Ranch, 430853 E 220 Rd, Vinita, OK. Registered Appaloosas that are also registered with AHA as half-Arabian may enter both National Championships.

The Appaloosa Horse Club (ApHC) was established in 1938 with a mission of honoring the heritage and promoting the future of the Appaloosa horse. The ApHC has since registered more than 700,000 Appaloosas, which are known for their distinctive color, intelligence and even temperament. True to their reputation as an extremely versatile breed, Appaloosas can be found in nearly every discipline including racing, endurance riding and serving as reliable family horses. The international breed registry is headquartered in Moscow, Idaho, the heart of the Palouse region—the Appaloosa breed’s namesake and point of origin.
