History [ edit ]

Like most American breeds, the Paint Horse also descends from the Iberian breeds taken to that continent during colonial times. These horses had broken colored coats and prospered in America in the wild. Later, the Indians domesticated this horse. They held this breed in very high esteem and attributed it magic powers.

Also called piebalds or screwbalds, the breed was named “Paint” due to their unusual skin coloration.

In the United Stated of America, the Paint Horse has always been associated with the West. He is nowadays on of the top choices for a rancher.
