Paints are restricted to the QH and Thoroughbred breeds (both breeds are found in paints). Pintos are of any breed, so long as they have enough white (usually white above the knee, on the body, past the eye, etc). Pintos can be registered as pinto, but it is a color based registry (like the palomino registry). So a horse can be registered as a purebred of any breed, and could be double registered as pinto if it has sufficient white. So a "crop out" (solid parents, loud colored foal) purebred quarter horse would be able to be registered with AQHA, APHA and PtHA.
