The ICAA Annual Membership Meeting will be held on Saturday, September 25, 2021. Time to be announced, but will more than likely be the usual time of 11:00 or 12:00 EST, so mark your calendars! This is our most important meeting of the year! If you have any proposals, please submit those prior to the meeting date. Take part, as this is your registry, and your ideas and proposals are important. The meeting will be via teleconference, so everyone can attend without the cost of travel, meals, and lodging.
The dial-in number and access code will be sent out prior to the meeting to active members. If you need to renew, please do. You can renew online.

In this quarter's Newsletter you'll get to meet Marlene Salvatora and her story of the Appaloosas in her life. You'll also find the newest upcoming specials, the next quarterly teleconference meeting date and time, and about how our first ICAA Virtual Halter Show went and things we and the participants learned.
We have two new ICAA Specials that will be running from July 1, 2021 through September 30, 2021!
Have you put off transferring the ICAA horse you purchased? Have you looked and saw the fee was higher after putting this off, so put it off even longer? Have you been sitting on multiple transfers, not wanting to pay the fee for someone else’s negligence in not transferring that horse to themselves and now you have two transfers; one to the seller and one to you, the buyer?
From July 1st to September 30th, 2021 you can send in your late and/or multiple transfer(s) for the same low fee of $10 (member rate), regardless of how old the transfer is and/or how many there are for each horse.
We’re feeling generous! To give those with current transfers a break, we’ll transfer your horse for only $5!
NOTE: If you have old transfers, please be sure to mail the certificate and transfer to the new ICAA address at PO Box 427, Whiteface, TX 79379!
From July 1st to September 30th, 2021 we’ve cut the registration fee in half! This is a special price that normally requires registering a herd. For most horses, this will only be $10 (member rate).
As per the rules, all horses must have a negative 5/6-Panel test (from any reputable lab), and stallions/mares must have their DNA Profile on file with AGI (using our form if not already on file).
Below this section are the horses from the show with their show results. Click on each horse and it will give their name and results.
For our very first show, it went very well. A big thanks goes out to Judge Dana Grafft for judging and for taking the time to critique each horse!
Both the owners/handlers and the ICAA learned from this first show and it should make future shows easier for everyone.
Be looking for classes and rules for the upcoming Virtual Performance Show. Videos will be due August 29, 2021!

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.
