    Hello everyone ! I recently bought a beautiful appaloosa foal, who will be home in less than 2 months now. He really is a sweetheart, he has a really gentle and calm personality, and is absolutly gorgeous (he is going to be rather tall). He happens to have a great lineage in western pleasure...
  2. Horse Breeds
    We recently purchased an Appaloosa colt, which we would like to use as a stud for our mares in the future. I tried to search online, but I couldn't find any useful info. How do I register/licence my colt with ApHC in the future, so we can breed with him? He has his pedigree and all, but I asume...

    I have a fully broke, 4-year-old, red, appaloosa/quarter cross with great conformation. He is a registered POA (Pony of America) at 14.2 hands. He is well tempered and gets along with all other horses. Not great for farrier but he loads, catches, and ties well. He currently jumps up to 1'8 but...

    There are so many horse breeds, and so many more that look similar to one another. How can you tell the difference? It's difficult, but it can be done. For now, lets just stick to the most recognizable. The Arabian Horse: The Arabian horse, also called the "Arab," is one of the most...

    So this is a horse at my riding stables and people say his colour is a blanket coat snowflake appaloosa, and I trust them but I've never seen another horse that looks like him and his coat doesnt come up with the same thing when I search it . I just wonder what it is :)

    At my barn there is an 18 year old Appaloosa mare that for one reason or another I have fell for. Sadly her original owner passed away unexpectedly and she’s just been at the barn. I have done a lot of ground work with her and I can say that the previous own did some work as well. She is voice...
  7. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    I've been trying to get a good saddle fit for an appaloosa I bought from an equine therapy program. She's a leopard appy, on the smaller side at 14.3h. She was said to be a registered appy at some time, but is long out of papers, so I have no idea on her breeding. I've tried saddles with full...
  8. Horse Breeds
    We rescued Finnigan this past spring. When we went to get him, seeing him for the first time, I realized he's also part Arabian besides being Appaloosa. Is this Blanket or Snowflake and would he be considered Varnish? I was wondering if his color will change and what it might change to? I have...
  9. Horse Talk
    Hi all, Since the birth of Arawenna my little Arab cross Appaloosa, I have had lots of people asking about her and wanting to know all about her! Someone suggested I made her an Instagram account, this seems a little to much for me but it did make me decide on doing a blog for people to...
  10. Horse Colors and Genetics
    I am totally new to Appaloosas - am I correct in considering my new rescue gelding an Appaloosa? Is the a way to tell if he is only Appaloosa or if there is something else? I have no background info on him. What is the exact name for his pattern? He is 4 years old and 14hh, is he likely...

    Someone posted a mare for sale today that appears to be a brindle (she gave permission to post the pictures). Sire is a solid bay, dam is a leopard appaloosa. It looks like part of her got the LP gene and the other part didn't. Her face looks like varnish to me, and it would explain the light...

    Bliss needs a job! Right now she's a poop-making pasture ornament because no one has time to work with her at the volume she needs to become a productive horse. She's got her ground manners, minus foot work, which will be worked on prior to her leaving. Her feet are magnificent, having never...

  14. General Riding queries
    I don't have any words to describe how much I dislike this. This is apparently saddleseat on stock horses or Appaloosa's (I don't even know). I'm not one to ever say that I dislike a discipline, maybe a lot of the people within certain disciplines, but I've never found myself unwilling to try...

    This is Ekko, she's ten months old. I apologize for her scruffy looking coat, it's muddy and shedding season. Ekko's dam is a brown roan percheronxsomething. Her sire is a leopard appy. Ekko was born a grulla/silvery colour. She shed out that coat quite quickly and appeared brown with a lighter...
  16. Horse Breeds
    Hi. I'm an art student and in my creature design class I decided to use horses for an assignment. I wanted to use Appaloosas because of their unique coat patterns. However I'm not well versed i the varying breeds of horses. So I was wondering if there were other breeds with similar body types to...

    Riding with my young cousin is always interesting to say the least. We went for a nice canter along the beach like we usually do... However, her pony decided that he didn't want to stop today-- resulting in a messy hoppity-pigroot-like action which tipped her forwards in her seat and flipped her...
  18. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I am getting a 2 year old appy/thoroughbred, he will be 3 in May, and I was wondering if anyone could give me advice on how I would go about teaching him basic manners and eventually to breaking him. Now I do know how to do most of this but I was curious about what are the different methods that...
