Euro Paint participants will have an even greater opportunity to increase their horses’ lifetime earnings thanks to a partnership with the American Paint Horse Association’s (APHA) Chrome Cash program. This is your chance to win not only ribbons, but also attractive prize money! The Chrome Cash program has established itself as an outstanding incentive, paying out more than $1 million last year. For 2024, over $50,000 in Chrome Cash money will again be available for APHA-registered shows.

At Euro Paint, € 6,000.00 in guaranteed prize money will be paid out in Chrome Cash classes for registered Paint Horses, plus 80% of the entry fees for each class.

The Chrome Cash disciplines are:

  • Trail
  • Ranch Riding
  • Western Pleasure
  • Reining
  • Showmanship at Halter (amateurs only)
  • and newly added Western Horsemanship (youth and amateurs)
