    History

    From the wild mustangs of Spanish descent, a unique color pattern arose, a combination of white and various contrasting colors. These animals became known as paint horses, and breeders began to study and encourage the distinctive color pattern. The American Paint Horse Association got its official start in 1962, in the kitchen of a paint aficionado. Along with bloodline requirements, the breed standard includes specific requirements for color, one color contrasting with white, and prescribed zones for the color. As paint owners know, all horses are beautiful, but it doesn’t hurt to have an extra splash of color.

    • Recommended Age: 3
    • Size in cm: 13 L x 3.5 W x 9.19 H
    Present Status The American Paint Stock Horse Association started with just 3,800 horses in 1962, but it has grown to more than 250,000 horses across the world. Every year, more than 25,000 foals are added to the APSHA registry.
