New Colors Compete at Congress

TULSA – The Pinto Horse Association of America, Inc. announces the lineup for its annual fall horse show. The 2011 Color Breed Congress has yet again extended its show roster to include even more color. This format will offer classes for horses registered with the PtHA, as well as, the Palomino Horse Breeders of America, International Buckskin Horse Association, American Buckskin Registry Association, Appaloosa Horse Club and Pony of the Americas Club. We are excited to welcome the ApHC and the POAC, which are both new to the Color Breed Congress. Adding the two additional breed association classes will bring new horses and colors to this year’s fall show. The Color Breed Congress is set for November 2-6, 2011, at The Built Ford Tough Livestock Complex at Expo Square in Tulsa, Okla.

Presented by the Pinto Horse Association of America Inc., the 5-day competition will showcase colorful and talented horses and their exhibitors in a variety of disciplines including English, western, barrel racing, and halter.

“The Color Breed Congress was a success last year,” said Darrell Bilke, Show manager and PtHA Executive Vice President/Chief Operating Officer. “We are excited to share that success with the other associations and look forward to providing a stage for high quality competition.”

Special events at the Color Breed Congress will include a Color Breed Cash Challenge that allows any horse registered with PtHA, IBHA, ABRA, PHBA, ApHC, POAC and the American Paint Horse Association to show and includes: Breeding Stock Pinto, Solid Paint-Bred and Palomino Bred. The Champion of Champions classes will be a definite highlight of the show, bringing back the top three places from certain classes in each breed to compete in one colorful arena.
