About Pintabian HorsesAbout Pintabian Horses



Pintabians are graceful, animated horses that are known for theirrnbeauty, stamina, versatility, and good disposition. Although Pintabians canrnalso be registered as Pintos, they are more specifically referred to as anrnArabian-type horse with spots. Pintabians have tobiano markings and over 99rnpercent Arabian blood. They became officially recognized in 1992 when thernPintabian Horse Registry was established.rnrn rnrn 

rnrnWhile its tobiano markings are one of its distinguishingrncharacteristics, the Pintabian is not a color breed. Arabian does not have arnspotted coat. In order to have a color pattern, there was a tobiano pinto, 7rngenerations ago that was crossed with an Arab. The tobiano color pattern isrndefined as non-symmetrical, with large irregular color spots. As eachrngeneration produced this spotted Arab, it was mated back to a 100% pure Arab torngain back the Arabian bloodlines until the Pintabian was produced. Because therntobiano gene is dominate, genetics experts have known that is was possible tornbreed this pattern into an Arabian to produce a relatively pure strain ofrntobiano horses with over 99% pure Arabian blood. Some of the conformationrnstandards include a beautifully formed head that is wide between the eyes withrna slightly concave profile. The eyes are bright, clear, and kind. The nostrilsrnare large but the muzzle small. The back is short, strong and muscular, thernchest broad and the shoulders long with good slope. The Pintabian standsrnbetween 14.2 and 15.2 hands high.rnrn rnrn 

rnrnThe Pintabian Registry requires that all registeredrnPintabians possess at least 99 percent Arabian blood. Although the Pintabianrnmust be of Arabian type, it is closely associated with the Pinto because of thernobvious coat similarities. The two types of coat of the Pinto are the overo andrntobiano. Overo consists of irregular black and white patches all over the body.rnTobiano consists of white and any other color except black.
