About Us

Chartered in 1971, the Ontario Paint Horse Club offers something for everyone.

Our aim is to promote and enjoy the American Paint Horse, whether in the show ring, on the trails, or simply at home in the backyard. We strive to maintain a club atmosphere suitable to encourage high moral character and sportsmanship among our members, and to develop the capabilities of our Youth and Amateurs in the breeding, raising and exhibiting of Paint Horses.

The club hosts shows, including our annual Futurity, at the Ancaster Fairgrounds. As well as earning APHA points, Ontario members can earn OPHC points and are eligible for Year End awards that are presented at our annual banquet. In addition to high point awards, awards are also given for the Most Improved and Most Sportsmanlike Amateur & Youth.

The OPHC offers Open, Amateur, Novice Amateur, Youth and Novice Youth classes.
