PBRIP stands for "Paint Barrel Racing Incentive Program."

It was designed to bridge the gap between barrel racers who run Paints and the American Paint Horse Association by making it easier for barrel racers to be a part of APHA without having to attend traditional breed shows.

PBRIP brings the breed to you at barrel racing events nationwide by adding money to the pot specifically for those enrolled in the program.

It's easy to get enrolled and get started earning extra cash with PBRIP.

  • First you need a registered American Paint Horse.
  • Next you'll need an APHA membership. Can be completed in a simple $45 transaction online or at a PBRIP-approved event.
  • Complete the PBRIP enrollment $35. Can be completed ahead of time and submitted to APHA or at a PBRIP-approved event.
For more information at ALL PBRIP events go to:



1. All APHA registered horses will be allowed to participate in PBRIP.

2. The annual PBRIP enrollment fee will be $35 for the first horse and $25 for each additional horse.  The enrollment year is 1 Jan- 31 Dec.

3. 15% of all enrollment fees collected shall be used for advertising, administration and promotion of PBRIP sidepots.

4. The remaining 85% of all enrollment fees collected shall be used for added money to PBRIP sidepots at selected barrel races within the discretion of APHA. PBRIP sidepot added money will only be available at races designated and authorized by APHA.
