Formed in 1983, the Ark-La-Tex Paint Horse Club annually has approximately 200 active members who come from as far away as Florida, North and South Carolina, as well as Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.

Starting with eight members and a treasury of less than $100, this 3 time Gold Star Club and winner of several President's Club of Distinction and Honorable Mention awards has a yearly stallion service sale that generates an average of $35,000 a year and a futurity that pays out between $55,000 and $60,000.

The stallion service sale began in 1985 and sold $3,500 in services.

The following year, the Breeder's Futurity began with four weanling classes and a guaranteed purse of $5,000. Through the years, an Open division was added. Classes in the futurities include halter weanlings, yearlings, longe line classes, two, three and all ages (non-pro) western pleasure, and reining.

The club takes particular pride in the scholarship fund established in the early '90s. The first two scholarships for $750 each were awarded in 2000. Annually the club awards 2 - 3 scholarships.

The Ark-La-Tex Paint Horse Club is a strong club with strong, hardworking members who have devoted years to promoting the American Paint Horse in the Ark-La-Tex region.
