Open Show Program
The BCPHC Open Show Program (OSP) gives members the opportunity to record their results at all breed shows and competitions and submit them for (really, really nice) BCPHC year end awards. The program is similar in philosophy to APHA’s Paint Alternative Competition (PAC) program, but is exclusive for BC Paint Horse Club members who compete in their local and discipline-specific live and virtual shows from
January 1 to October 30. (We’ll be collaborating with Lower Mainland Quarter Horse in 2021 to deliver made-in-BC virtual show opportunities — stay tuned for details!)
Open Show exhibitors compete for year ends in six categories. The English and Western categories include all classes shown in their respective disciplines, and we’ve added a Walk Trot division for all ages and exhibitors. We’ve simplified the age divisions – Junior is for members 18 and under, and all Seniors (professional OR amateur) qualify for the senior division, 19 years of age and over.
For a one time enrollment fee of just $25 (one horse/one exhibitor combination), you are invited to submit your results for every all breed show or competition you attend this season by email, Facebook Messenger or post. Youth exhibitors enroll for free, thanks to the generous support of a couple of our members.
If you’re registered for APHA’s PAC program, you should be sending BC Paint your OSP results, too! The Northwest Co-ordinating Committee (NWCC) also hosts an open show awards program and as a BC Paint Horse member, you are eligible for that as well. SO many ways to win! Enroll in BC Paint’s Open Show Program using our membership application and start showing and filing your results soon! Good luck!
PS: This year, we’re seeking sponsors for all our year-end awards. Sponsorship of an Open Show division is $100. Please contact us to secure your sponsorship! Thank you!
