With the current economic climate, ICAA has decided to offer a “Corona Special” on new and renewing memberships! This special will run from November 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020. Membership will be good for the remainder of 2020 and all of 2021. At this discounted rate, there is a limit of two years (2021 and 2022) that can be purchased. Membership fee will be reduced from $15 to $10 for each year.
ICAA will be running its 2021 Annual Stallion Service Auction again this year. We are looking for donations of ICAA or ICAA eligible stallions to include in the auction. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you want to donate!
Stallions will be advertised prior to and through the auction on Facebook and the ICAA website, so this will promote your stallion, in addition to helping raise funds for ICAA to help keep their fees low, and to promote the registry.
Stallion owners will receive a free registration in 2021/2022. All stallion service contracts will be between the stallion owner and the mare owner.
Bidding dates will be December 15, 2020, to January 15, 2021. Keep watching the ICAA website and Facebook page for details.

Do you need a safe haven for your ApHCC horse’s pedigree? ICAA is running a special from August 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020, for all ICAA eligible ApHCC horses, both registered and unregistered.
If your horse qualifies for registration with ICAA, we welcome your registered ApHCC and ApHCC eligible horses for a special registration fee of only $10 each, or $7.50 each for a herd of five or more. If you have horses that need to be transferred, you can send in the transfer to us at the time of registration to put the horse into your name.
ApHCC horses have always been recognized as an ICAA approved breed!
Please contact ICAA for the paperwork requirements for the registration of ApHCC eligible horses that have not yet been registered, and for any other questions.

The mailing address for ICAA is that of the Secretary, who is currently Sharon January. She has moved due to an unexpected change of work, and so the mailing address for ICAA has changed, effective immediately.
The new address is:
PO Box 427
Whiteface, TX 79379
All forms have been updated with this new mailing address soon. PLEASE, if you have any old forms, or have sold a horse and/or given out any forms with the Milnesand, NM address, advise them of this change! A forwarding has been put in at the Post Office, which will be good for one year, but this does slow up the mail time for receiving mail.
It is best to look at the website and/or call ICAA to be sure you have the correct address when mailing anything to ICAA via snail mail.
Remember, most business can be conducted through the ICAA website, without having to use snail mail.
This was the ICAA Trail Logging Program, but revamped! This program, which allows for not only riding and driving your horse for pleasure, but also allows for time spent with your Appaloosa for other activities, including grooming, leading, lunging, trailer loading, in-hand obstacle training, at-liberty training, and any other non-competitive activity. This will allow horses from birth to earn recognition for the work put into producing a quiet, dependable family member. This enhanced program also allows for one handler, in addition to the owner, to work with and record time spent with the horse, so we would encourage owners to be mentors to our younger generation.
ICAA recognizes the importance of working with our Appaloosas from foaling to finished riding partner. Time spent working with your Appaloosa helps to form a bond that will last a lifetime.
The ICAA Horsemanship Program is designed to record and recognize the hours spent working with and training your Appaloosa. In this program, the owner and/or handler keeps track of the hours spent working with and training the Appaloosa; recording, and submitting them to ICAA, where they will be recorded in the horse’s permanent record and Certificates of Achievement will be earned for each milestone reached.
This program will be ongoing through the life of the horse, and will transfer to the new owner, should the horse be sold.
Go to the Programs: Horsemanship page to learn more about the rules of this new program. For those who are already enrolled in the Trail Logging Program, you will continue to keep time on the log sheet you have, but other activities may be included as per the Horsemanship Program rules.
