For competition purposes, "American-bred" means that the horse was foaled in the United States. The horse can be enrolled as American-bred if there is documentation that states the horse was foaled in the United States.
2. How do I enter my horse into the APH?
Submit the request on the Horse Recording Application. A copy of the breed papers or a USEF Breeders Affidavit and the $10 processing fee are also required.
3. Does my horse have to be Recorded with USEF to be eligible for the APH?
No. Any horse born in the U.S. is eligible to enter the registry if they provide proof that they are American-bred. Horses enrolled by submitting breed papers or a USEF Breeders Affidavit will incur a small processing fee of $10.
APH enrolled horses will appear on APH Rankings Lists and will be eligible for APH Year-End Awards.
4. How is the American Performance Horse recognized?
APH horses who are also USEF recorded will be designated with a special symbol in the USEF Horse of the Year standings. If the APH horse is registered with a breed registry, the corresponding logo will also appear.
Recorded and non-recorded USEF horses will be recognized on a ranking list for APH horses only. This list will also show the breed registry logo.
All horses enrolled will be eligible for APH Year-End Awards.
