The Saddle Log Program is a great way for you to earn awards for the time you spend riding your Appaloosa. The program recognizes the personal achievements and benefits of riding on a routine basis. Whether you participate in trail rides, train and compete in shows, ride in parades, perform ranch work, or enjoy pleasure riding, each hour counts toward your lifetime achievement record and enables you to receive recognition and awards from the ApHC.

To qualify for the Saddle Log Program you must be a current AYA member, and any horses used in the program must be ApHC-registered Appaloosas (#, CN or N -registered horses or have been issued a Performance Permit prior to the qualifying year, are eligible). You may use multiple ApHC-registered Appaloosas and do not need to own the horses used in the program.

For youth, there is a one-time $20 enrollment fee that enables you to participate from the date the application is received in the ApHC office until you are over the age of 18 as of January 1. At that time, you may register as an adult. The ApHC also offers a program for disabled riders and drivers, and the same rules for enrollment and qualification apply.

You can Enroll by sending a completed Saddle Log Program Application form and enrollment fee to the ApHC office or click here to Enroll Online.

Hours are logged online via the ApHC Member Portal and are permanently maintained in the customerís file even if you become inactive in the program. An ApHC membership is required in order to participate in the Saddle Log program.
