About the Pinto Horse Association of America
The Pinto Horse Association of America was formed in 1956 to not only create a registry of colored horses, ponies, and miniatures, but also to track pedigrees and promote the Pinto. The PtHA® has grown over the years and now offers three different registers including the color register, the solid register and the long ear register. One thing that makes this association unique is that all equines, regardless of size or breeding, can now qualify to be registered in one of three PtHA® registries. Currently, the association has approximately 88,000 members and has over 157,000 registered Pintos. For more information, you can visit pintohorse.org.
History of the breed
Originally from Spain, the Pinto horse was introduced to North America by the Spaniards and other European explorers who came to North America. The color patterns are unique in themselves and can be traced back to Spanish Barb horses which had been crossed with other European breeds, including Russian and Arabian strains. When the Spanish Pinto herds were brought to North America, these horses mixed with wild horses and were later domesticated by Native Americans.
The Pinto Horse Association® was born out of a grassroots movement to selectively breed horses for good color and conformation. Several riders in the 1930s formed the Pinto Horse® Society for the purpose of breeding superior colored horses. The registry they created formed the basis of what is now known as the Pinto Horse Association of America Inc.®
