Horse Breed American Paint Horse

The Paint Horse (color breed/stock type/hunter type) was presented into the United States by Spanish explorers. It is mostly consisted of stock type horses such as Quarter Horses. Some have Thoroughbred impact.

The two particular coat patterns of the Paint Horse are tobiano and overo.

The overo pattern has no white crossing over the back; has several dark legs; is typically bald-, apron-, or bonnet-faced; has body markings that are irregularly spotted or splashy; and has a tail that is normally one color.

The tobiano pattern is white with colored areas and does have white crossing over the back; consists of a solid-color confront with standard markings; has white on all legs; has routine body areas, and is dark in one or both flanks.

The Paint Horse normally stands 14.2 to 15.2 hh hands high at the withers, with a body style actually similar to that of the Quarter Horse. Paint Horses are short in their heads and have extremely effective, short-coupled bodies.

Paint Horses are extremely vibrant and flexible, that makes them attractive while being ridden, helpful for cattle ranch work, and competitive in rodeos, revealing, or racing.
