This episode I pass on the new check in procedures for the 2019 Appaloosa World show. I talk about the ApHC National Championship Endurance Ride and the first ever ApHC National Championship Competitive Trail Ride, being held in Vanita, OK on October 25 & 26. I also give a follow up with the last episode where I announced that the PtHA (Pinto Horse Association) is now accepting Characteristic Appaloosas into their Solid Show Registry, and then I bring you up to speed with all of the Motions that the ApHC Board of Directors have made so far this year. Which ones have passed, which ones didn't and which ones were sent back to Committees. I will explain how the ApHC motions process works and ApHC Rule 70. .
