Hall of Fame

PHBA Members

The Palomino Horse Breeders of America Hall of Fame recognizes members and horses who have made significant contributions to the association and for the Palomino Horse across all recognized breeds of horses. The Hall of Fame is separated into two areas of recognition: Members and Horses. Candidates can be nominated in different categories by a set of criteria set forth by the PHBA Executive Board and the PHBA Hall of Fame committee. Only two (living or deceased) members and (deceased only) horses are allowed to be inducted per year, making this Hall of Fame one of the most prestigious halls of honor in the horse industry.

Members are nominated based on the type of contributions that are made to the Association.
