2021 NC State Fair, three Appaloosa enthusiasts decide to make it a goal to bring back Appaloosa events to North Carolina. We founded NCAC February 2022 with great energy and optimism. Our goal is to build a great community that is warm and inviting. We want to enjoy the companionship of our favorite horses with old friends and introduce new friends. 

We are so much more than just shows, we will be hosting a variety of activities from clinics to group trails. There is an activity for everyone!
