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!

The passionate leaders behind the Club
Trista started in Hunters when she was young and found herself drawn to Appaloosas in the 90s. She has competed at the Nationals and World in all around events with her youth horse Partners in Crime. She currently owns A Hero in Chanel, and competes in Non-Pro Huntset events.
Kassie found her love for the breed while in college, riding in IHSA Hunter/ Jumper and Western Pleasure. She purchased her first Appaloosa before graduation and has owned at least one for the last 24 years.
She and her horses enjoy taking people on trail rides, beach rides, lessons, games shows, ranch riding and cattle sorting. She currently owns Spanish Prince Leo and Repeat the Dream.
