Home Zone-O-Rama Zone One Council Contact


We’re number one!

When the American Paint Horse Association created zones to recognize the achievements of its members in geographical areas, they made the Pacific Northwest number one! Although boundaries have evolved over time, APHA’s Zone One now encompasses Alaska, British Columbia, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington and is represented not only by APHA directors elected to represent the provinces and states within the zone but by APHA regional clubs that are members of the Zone One Representative Council.

The council is best known as the host of the annual Zone-O-Rama APHA horse show that showcases the diversity and talent of American Paint Horses and their owners throughout the Pacific Northwest.

As the Zone One council, we are very pleased to invite you to compete at the
2018 Zone-O-Rama & Inland NW Paint Horse Club Show in NAMPA, ID, August 9-18

Our history

The Zone One Representative Council was created through the efforts of Mrs. Lyle (Butch) Wonderlich in late 1984. In 1985, the first officers were elected and Butch served as chairperson for the first two years. Plans for the first Zone One show were completed and Walla Walla was selected as the most centrally located show site. The show remained there four years. The first few years were financially difficult but by 1989, when the show moved to Olympia, Washington, it was an established event. The Zone One Zone-O-Rama has since been held in Salem and Albany, Oregon and in Idaho.
