2020 Zone Show canceled

The Zone One and INPHC boards have met multiple times in recent months to discuss the current health situation and the potential legal and financial implications it poses to our combined event in August 2020. We have also thoughtfully considered the feedback received from our collective exhibitor base, and sadly we have come to the decision to cancel the show.  

This decision is not one that the board members have made lightly.  Several factors strongly influenced our decision – including a reduction in volunteer support, the financial burden of providing PPE as recommended by APHA & the Health Department, the legal requirements of planning, as well as enforcement of health protocols. As a collective group of volunteer board members and show planners, we explored several different options in an attempt to hold our combined shows. At this time, it is the feeling of the boards that cancelling the Zone One and INPHC combined show in August 2020 is in the overall best interest of our future events.

We know this is disappointing to many of you who have been anxious to show and had the Zone One & INPHC event on your calendars. As such, we want to make sure to invite you to two other shows at the same facility that are currently proceeding:

Please watch their Facebook pages and their websites for additional show information & class lists as they work on finalizing everything.

While you may be disappointed, we do ask for your respectful support of this very difficult decision. It was truly made with the focus on the longevity and the quality of the Zone One show for years to come.

Good luck to everyone showing the rest of this year. Zone One & INPHC cannot wait to see you again in August 2021 where we will have some new, fun things planned!

2020 Zone Show Committee

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.
