The Appaloosa Horse Club (ApHC) is excited to announce Steinert Ranch LLC as its newest Gold Level Sponsor of the 73rd National & 2021 World Championship Appaloosa Youth Show.
Steinert Ranch LLC, located in Strafford, Missouri, and owned by Earl A. Steinert Jr., is known for producing multiple, versatile champion Appaloosas who have excelled in everything from cattle and games to halter and pleasure. Mr. Steinert won the prestigious World Show Leading Breeder Award in 2017, and through breeding and/or ownership he is associated with multiple ApHC Hall of Fame Horses including Main Issue, Impress The Court, The Dreamanator, Bet Your Dream, and Heza Dreamer.
“We are grateful to Mr. Steinert for his generosity in supporting the National and Youth World Show,” said ApHC Executive Secretary Lynette Thompson. “Mr. Steinert is an excellent ambassador for the Appaloosa breed, and we thank him for his lifelong dedication and support of the ApHC.”
Now in its 73rd year, the National Appaloosa Show is the longest-running, single-breed horse show in the nation. The first National Show was held in 1948 in Lewiston, Idaho. New in 2021, the National Show will award national points under each judge to count toward year-end and lifetime awards, and National Show champions will automatically qualify for the 2021 World Championship Appaloosa Show in that class.
The 73rd National & Youth World Championship Show will take place in Tulsa, Oklahoma, July 26–August 1, 2021. To view the show schedule and other important show information, please visit www.appaloosa.com/national-show.
The Appaloosa Horse Club (ApHC) was established in 1938 with a mission of preserving, promoting and enhancing the Appaloosa breed. The ApHC has since registered more than 700,000 Appaloosas, which are known for their distinctive color, intelligence and even temperament. True to their reputation as an extremely versatile breed, Appaloosas can be found in nearly every discipline including racing, endurance riding and serving as reliable family horses. The international breed registry is headquartered in Moscow, Idaho, the heart of the Palouse region—the Appaloosa breed’s namesake and point of origin.
