About the Paint Horse Show

Native American Indians and cowboys alike treasured the forerunners of today’s Paint Horse for their hardiness and spectacular color patterns. Though still admired for their colorful coats today, strict bloodline requirements have also ensured a horse of superior conformation and ability. Today’s Paint Horse has the intelligence, disposition, and color that make it an ideal partner for pleasure riding, racing, ranching, showing, or rodeoing all over the world. The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo hosts a growing Paint Horse competition approved by the American Paint Horse Association (APHA). These athletic and versatile horses will compete for awards in Halter, Showmanship, English, Western, and Trail classes. Find patterns for Free at horseshowpatterns.com.
