[ INDEX ] Equine Type: Horse Breed: Pintabian   [ PREV ] [ NEXT ]
The Pintabian is any horse with Arabian conformation and tobiano coat. It was created by crossing pinto horses of various breeds with pure Arabian horses, hence its name. This relatively new breed was officially recognized in 1992, upon the foundation of the Pintabian Horse Registry Inc.

Naturally, Arabian horses don't have a tobiano coat except for sabino, which is why the creation of tobiano Pintabian horses involved crossing purebred Arabians with tobiano horses of other breeds. Therefore, Pintabians will never be considered as purebred Arabians, unless they have a sabino-like particolor coat, which does occur in Arabians, and doesn't necessarily require crossbreeding with other breeds.

Pintabian horses have 99% Arabian blood, and therefore have the same conformation as Arabian horses. The only visible difference between the breeds is the Pintabian's tobiano patterning, which it must have, and which can be in various colors, including black, bay, buckskin, chestnut, dun, gray, grullo ,and palomino. Pintabians stand between 14.2hh and 15.2hh.
