About paint horses
About Paint Horses

  • Paint Horses were brought to America by Spanish Explorers.

  • Paint Horses are a cherished part

    of Native American history.

  • Paint Horses were once disliked because

    of their extra color. With the help of

    Rebecca Lockhart, Paint Horses have

    proven that they are just as great as

    any other breed of horse.

    40,000 Paint Horses are

    registered per year with APHA.

    There are about 80,000 registered Paint Horses

    in Texas.
