Register Your Horse!

Open to all horses that show pinto, appaloosa and pintaloosa markings!

Registration Form can be found on the Form Download page.

For the Pintaloosa Branch

**For equine to qualify in the "Pintaloosa" Catagory one must be eligible for one of the 3 types of group class. The class types are the EXACT types from the real horse registry.

Class A Type > horse must possess BOTH characteristic color patterns of the Pinto AND Appaloosa. (Proof of parentage not required.)

Class B Type > Proof of parentage is required for this Class type only - horse that shows only one (1) color pattern characteristic of either the Pinto or Appaloosa, but the parentage of the horse is Pinto and Appaloosa or Pintaloosa.

(example: a registered Class A Pintaloosa stallion is breed to a QH solid mare and the foal is born with only one color pattern type, this foal would be classified as a Class B type or if bred to a any spotted horse or another Pintaloosa)

(if a foal is born of a solid color, it can be put into the CPI program - "Certified Parentage Identification", one parent must be registered with ISHR. This is not a registration, but rather a certification of the hereitage it it possesses.)

Class C Type > If horse is of only one color pattern, but it is known (but can't be proved) that the sire and dam were Pinto and Appaloosa or Pintaloosa, then the horse will receive this classification. (or if the owner chooses, depending on the color markings, the horse can be registered as a Patchwork Paint or an Appaloosa)

(from drafts to miniatures)
