Pintabians

Anyone know anything about pintabians? My neighbor has one and I guess it is fairly popular in Canada? They are supposed to be (I think) 99% Arabian and the rest tobiano paint. I am not sure but he is really a cool horse. He is all Arab when it comes to build and traits, but he has a beautiful paint coat.

People always trash on Arabs for being high strung, and I have to often agree with the generalization, but he is GOOD horse! He is kid safe, awesome on trails rides, and spooks in place rather than bolting. Maybe that little bit of paint helped level his head :)

Anyway, I don't really know much about the breed combo, but was curious if anyone else did and what you guys think of it. I really like the paint color and level head, but also admire the Arab spirit, so I think it is a lovely combination (at least in the one example I have seen).

When I read about it, I found one source that said there are only 350 registered pintabians in the world.

Ugh. I can't tell you how often I hear people bash Arabs. :roll:
I LEARNED to ride on an Arab. Sweetest thing you'd ever want to be around!

But anyway, lol... Info on the breed:

That sounds really cool. I've heard of that kind of horse before but I honestly don't know that much about them. You should post a pic I wanna see

Amd I don't really believe in the whole thing about people bashing arabians. I think arabs are actually pretty neat. I have ridden two arabs before and one I rode when I first got in english for the very first time. That's how trust worthy I was of these so called bad high strung arabs. :roll: lol they probably don't really know that much about the arabs anyway.

Check out this site. There is a stunning picture of a pintabian stallion. *drools excessively* if I were in the states I would breed that with my tb ,mare instead of the black arab I've chosen. Same stud fee too

I used to ride a pintabian mare, she was awesome. She was slow enough for the little kids, but could jump 3ft easily (I won a few puissance classes on her 8) ) And she looooved gaming. I was about the only one who would ride her in games (because she was normally so lazy) but we always kicked butt!
Basically she looked like a paint with a dished face and held her tail up.lol. She was an awesome horse and I would consider looking into one if you could:P

OOOOO Jazzyrider he's so pretty!!

I kinda want an arabian but sry I really just like my paints and quarter horses more. And if I had enough money I would definitely get a dutch warmblood. :)

I still want an arabian some day in the future though. For some reason I really want a chestnut arabian dished face and all they are cute.
