About AjPHA

The American Junior Paint Horse Association is the youth association of the American Paint Horse Association. Anyone aged 18 & under (as of January 1st) with an interest in Paint Horses is invited to join the “j”.

AjPHA members enjoy the same membership benefits as adult APHA members, and can participate in APHA approved shows and programs. In addition, the AjPHA offers activities geared toward youth, including a youth leadership conference, art contest, photography contest, short story contest, and horse judging contest.

AjPHA members are part of a huge family of friends sharing a common bond- a love for the American Paint Horse. AjPHA offers something for everyone, no matter how long you have been riding, where you live, or the discipline you enjoy. AjPHA has members who show on a regular basis, members who ride for fun, and even members who don’t own a horse.
