Hi, I'm Tim Wigren, owner and operator of Command Performance here in Ridgefield, Washington. I'm here to talk to you about the history of the Pinto. In 2006, Pinto Horse Association celebrated its fiftieth anniversary; but the history of the Pinto dates way back to the Spanish explorers bringing the first Pintos to the new world and ever since when people have wanted a little bit of color, the new colors have exploded in patterns and styles all throughout the whole United States. Whenever people have simply wanted to add a little color and add a little flash, they've added some Pinto to their breed. That's why we have our four major breed types: pleasure type, saddle type, stock type and hunter type. All of these horses have been influenced and have been enhanced with the advent of color and a little bit of flash.
