96 American Paint Horse Association clubs in the world, 2 clubs chosen for APHA Gold Star Status in 2018…
Kansas Paint Horse Association was recognized just this past weekend at the APHA National Convention as of 1 of those elite clubs!
Congratulations to our KPHA membership! Your welcoming attitude, willingness to work hard and knowledge base have made KPHA an organization horse enthusiasts want to become involved in. KPHA is much more than a breed club as we work to strengthen the equine community.
Our Association offers opportunities in the show arena and in the performance pen to Paint and All Breed owners/exhibitors; ignites leadership interests; provides scholarships to youth; share current news affecting the equine industry; and foster strong friendships and equine fellowships.
Share our club news with your friends. Contact Sheri Grinstead, KPHA Secretary, or another KPHA officer listed on our website at www.kansaspainthorse.com for membership information.

Horse Racing in Kansas:
Kansas Paint Horse Association supports the efforts of the Kansas Racing Commission and its goal of returning horse racing to Kansas. Current legislation is considered as a win for rural Kansas, for communities in Kansas and for economic development throughout Kansas. Racing strengthens the options for our equine breeders and promotes jobs and services not just in racing but a wide variety of agricultural enterprises.
We encourage you to support the efforts of the Race for Kansas movement. Consider writing or speaking to state legislators in support of this activity.
Below is a link which will take you directly to sample correspondence which may be used to draft a personal letter of support for racing in Kansas.
