With the 2018 monthly APHC USA International rankings coming out at the end of the show season there is much deserved congratulations  on the APHC UK facebook page (and the individuals own sites) .  However one remark "it is very rare for a stallion located in the UK to be listed" is somewhat incorrect. 

It is such a shame that the APHC UK appears to forget the past APHC USA registered UK stallions (including the best USA imports) listed in the International rankings including :

2004 Mannog Moonriver & APHC USA Grand Champion:  5 Entries Aged Stallions: 1st Mannog Moonriver. 2nd. Private B Riker. 3rd: Amazing Blue. 4th:Mannog Moonshadow. 5th:Wa Ha Dar.  

2009 Mannog Moonshadow & Reserve USA Grand Champion:   4 colts/stallions: 1st Mels Wa Ha American Star.  1st Rustlers Private Bill.  3rd Mannog Moonshadow. 4 th  Mannog Moonriver.

2010 Mannog Zips Rio Grande & APHC USA Grand Champion & 1st FPD Halter:  3 colts/stallions: 1st Mannog Zips Rio Grande. 1st. Mannog Zips Imagine. 1st. Wa Ha Dar

2013 Mannog Zips Candy Man & APHC USA Grand Champion:  3 colts/stallion: 1st. Mannog Zips Candy Man. 1st. Peyres Sully Cortez R. 2nd Amazing Technicolour. 

The Mannog Appaloosa Stud is the only Appaloosa stud to have gained FOUR APHC USA International Stallion listings in the UK and all home bred with proven American pedigrees.   Not such a rarity then. 

The current APHC USA points system is : Rule 701.A.  "All nationally pointed open classes shall count towards national point system based on awards.  Points shall be earned according to the number of horses shown and judged in a class as follows:


#of horses        1st   2nd   3rd

2                      1/2   

3-7                   1      1/2

The Grand Champion shall receive an extra  1 pt and the Reserve Grand 1/2 point.
