10px between - The North American Packgoat Association was founded in 1999 by a group of goat packers at the first rendezvous held in Carson, Washington at the Wind River Work Center on Forest Service land.

It was named this as we wanted to encompass more than the USA as we had Canadian members right from the start. The name is pronounced NAP-GA, as the name NAPA was already taken by an auto parts franchise. We also agreed to the name “packgoat” since packhorse is the preferred way of referring to horses that pack.
