What Is A Paint Horse?

A Paint horse is a horse registered with the American Paint Horse Association (APHA). Paint horses are characterized by their colorful, spotted coat patterns and their well-muscled, stock-horse type build.

To be eligible for registration in the "Regular" APHA registry a horse must meet certain bloodline and conformation requirements, and also have what the APHA calls a "definite natural Paint marking." While there are exact rules regarding exactly what a "natural Paint marking" is we'll generalize the requirement for the purposes of this article and simply say the horse must have at least one spot. For more information on Paint horses we suggest you visit the APHA website.

How Are Paints Different Than Pintos?

A Paint horse and a Pinto horse are both horses characterized by spotted coat patterns. However, there are differences between a Paint and a Pinto. Paint horses are a specific breed of horse and are registered with the American Paint Horse Association (APHA). To be registered with the APHA a horse must meet its bloodline, conformation, and coat color requirements. A Pinto horse, on the other hand, is a horse registered with the Pinto Horse Association which is a color registry only. This means that while a Pinto horse does have to meet certain color requirements, it does not have to meet any bloodline or conformation requirements. A Pinto horse can be any breed or combination of breeds.
