ICAA has dropped the number of horses required to receive a herd discount from 15 to five! We realized that few people have been able to qualify for this discount in the past and wanted to allow more people to benefit. When registering five or more horses at one time, the regular registration fee is half price!
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.
