What breed do you think my horse is? I know she is a paint, and some people say she's part quarter horse. What do you think?Attachment 216338

She's not necessarily a paint - paint is a breed. Her colouring is called pinto.

It is impossible to tell much from those pics. Can you get photos of her whole body, untacked? Both standing and maybe trotting at liberty?

Gosh she is pretty! And handy too. Lovely pictures!

Pretty horse but have you got any conformation shots? :)

My paint is American tobiano paint, she has 4 white socks, and brown and white, she is 1\2 thoroughbred 1\2 quarter horse ( Very Stocky) I'm thinking maybe yours might be, saddlebreed, breed wise, and does she have a natural gait at all? Keep in mind I'm just guessing... most Qh are stocky, she seems more long and lean like a thoroughbred and hmm ? Just my opinion , hard to tell in these pictures

What? I thought Paint Horse is a real breed and has been for a long time. Do they allow crossbreds now to be part of the Paint breed?

By the way, if the OP's horse is part spotted Saddlebred, it wouldn't make any difference. Saddlebreds are not gaited. They are trained to gait.

Very pretty horse, the OP showed and looks to be a handy jumper. Please do show us some conformation shots of her.

Okay so these are the only pics I had that were halfway decent even though their from 3 years ago. I will try to get some better ones. And if it makes any difference, she is about 15.3 hh tall, is 11 years old, and has a smooth but shorter stride. Im pretty sure she's not thoroughbred just because i've been around thoroubreds a lot and she doesn't seem like one. The only similarity is she is super fast. But I could be wrong about the thoroughbred. Also I just checked her coggins and it says her breed is pinto, but thats a color so idk... Honsestly I know hardly anything about her and I just really want to know more.

American Paint Horse - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia this should help clarify :)

By what little I know of the APHA, one parent MUST be registered with the APHA and parents should also be registered with the Jockey club and/or the AQHA. I took you to mean in your post, that you had a crossbred horse of colour and were calling it a Paint. Where would the colour come from, if your horse is a first generation cross? I presume from the Thoroughbred side, since QHs are not coloured.

My granddaughter owns a palomino and white, spotted Paint, which her trainer gave her after the death of her gymkhana gelding. On the registration papers, the registration number of both parents, plus pictures, had to be submitted.
