TO OUR CANADIAN NEIGHBORS!
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 is moving due to an unexpected change of work, and so the mailing address for ICAA has changed, effective immediately. Note: Due to the ineptness of the post office, we were originally issued a box (425) that was and had been owned by someone else for 50 years, and so we were issued another. The address below has the correct box number.
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.
The Summer Newsletter is now online!
See Robyn Lay's article titled "APPVENTURES IN BACKCOUNTRY CAMPING"
and "Useful Backcountry Items to Pack" in this issue.
Congratualtions are in order for Kim Rumpsa and R Secret Decoration (“Deco”), F2-2723, who participated in the 40-mile Appaloosa Championship Competitive Trail Ride (ANCCTR), and at the end of the day, Deco was announced the Champion! See in this issue.
Sadly we have a few deaths announced in this issue as well; both a wonderful man, Stan Dobson, and a beloved horse, Sequoia Reign.
The link below will take you to the Publications: Newsletters page where you will find this newest Newsletter, as well as several years of older.
The ICAA Annual Membership Meeting has been scheduled for Saturday, September 26, 2020 at 11:00 EST. This meeting will be via teleconference and anyone can attend. Just let us know prior to the meeting to give you the dial in number.
If you have any proposals you would like to turn in, you can find a Proposal Form near the bottom of the Form's page under Misc. Please try to turn these in prior to the meeting date.
We would like everyone to participate in the meeting. This is your registry, and your throughts and ideas are important!
This was the ICAA Trail Logging Program, but revamped! We're exited to roll out this enhanced 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.
As you know, ICAA is partnered with AGI to give member discounts for genetic testing packages. Recently, we updated these packages, so please take a look at our new form, located on the Forms page. We have added champagne back into our color package, as we are seeing more champagne Appaloosas. The biggest changes are, 1) AGI is now doing 6-Panel tests, and we have added this into both the genetic defects packages, and 2) few people were using the package that had SCID added in. Since geldings do not need to be DNA Typed, which was included with both packages, we have taken out both SCID and the DNA Typing from that second package, and now it is a straight 6-Panel with no other tests included, for a better discount of $75.
If you have any proposals to turn in for discussion and voting on, there is now a form available online for this. Of course, you can add pages if your proposal is too long. You can find this form near the bottom of the Forms page in the Misc section.
