So I've always been confused by the whole Paint/Pinto thing. When I bought my horse, she had been registered with the now defunct American Indian Paint Horse Association. Frida's mother was pure arab (reg AHA), and her father was full paint (reg APHA) I found out that I can't register Fri with the APHA because they don't allow Arabs, so I registered her as half-arab with the AHA. My trainer told me that in England they don't even consider the Paint a breed, but a color, same as Pinto. Also, I've heard some say there are no American Indian Paint Horses, that most of the time that means they are basically QH's, so some people even call my horse a Half Arab/Half QH. What's your take? Does she even look like a QH? Do Paints look like QH's? I don't even recall ever seeing a pure Paint...I board at a Pro QH barn and most of the horses are champion reiners, or retired champion reiners. She looks and moves nothing like them. They are all built like Diesel engines, lol.
