[ INDEX ] Equine Type: Horse Breed: American Paint Race Horse (APH Race) [ PREV ] [ NEXT ]
Breeding and registration:
American Paint Horses are often created by crossing American Paint Horses with Thoroughbreds. They are considered as Paint Horses because horses with one Paint parent and one Thoroughbred parent are eligible for registration as Paint Horses.
Conformation and abilities:
The conformation of American Paint Race Horses is geared toward racing. They are lighter, taller, and smoother than the other subtypes of this breed, and some of them are more similar in appearance to the Thoroughbred rather than the Paint Horse. However, they all have the large hind muscles required for the fast acceleration and sprinting that is characteristic to the breed.
They do have one flaw, which is their lack of agility compared to the other subtypes of the American Paint Horse. Therefore, they are less suited for competitions such as barrel racing that require sharp turns.
