Fort Worth, TX-March 30, 2016-The World Conformation Horse Association announced today a strategic alliance agreement between Palomino Horse Breeders of America and WCHA.

The agreement cements the two organizations in promoting, protecting and preserving the conformation horse within the Palomino horse breed and the PHBA. Some components of the alliance agreement include the use of WCHA approved judges for halter and/or conformation classes at PHBA national or world championship events and WCHA will feature Palomino horses in its advertising and promotional material.

WCHA President Luke Castle states, “The conformation horse industry has many notable Palomino horses participating in halter competition and within many successful breeding operations, so the opportunity to promote PHBA within our industry will be a win-win for both organizations.”
