Northwest Co-ordinating Committee

The Northwest Co-ordinating Committee is an umbrella organization of American Paint Horse Association regional clubs in the Pacific Northwest (Zone One), representing Paint Horse owners in British Columbia, Oregon, Idaho and Washington. NWCC is one of several

co-ordinating committees across North America that meet regularly to co-ordinate APHA show dates and judges to help minimize conflicts for APHA exhibitors, manage an awards program that recognizes the achievements of exhibitors showing at NWCC-approved shows, host futurities that demonstrate the versatility and talent of our American Paint Horses and help promote shows and events hosted by participating clubs.

Show Dates & Judges

In an effort to give each NWCC club the opportunity to host the best possible APHA-approved horse shows, as well as provide an opportunity for exhibitors to attend as many shows as possible, NWCC co-ordinates show dates and judges. A judge may only be hired to judge one NWCC show per year. In the rare event that a judge is hired for multiple shows, the results from that judge will only be counted once for year end awards.

The NWCC show and judge co-ordinator maintains a current list of show dates and judges. Show dates and judges are published in the NWCC directory, club newsletters, websites and various other publications.

Year End Awards

NWCC oversees one of the most coveted year end award programs for APHA exhibitors in the Pacific Northwest. To be eligible for NWCC year end awards, an exhibitor must be a current member of an NWCC member club and complete an NWCC declaration form for each horse prior to their first show.
