Incorporated in 1956, the Pinto Horse Association of America was formed to encourage the promotion of quality horses,
ponies and miniatures with color and to establish a registry for maintaining their show records and pedigrees. The PtHA® has evolved through the years and now has three separate registries: the Color Registry, the Solid Registry, and the Long Ear registry. All equines, no matter the size or breeding, can now qualify to be registered in one of the three PtHA® Registries. With a variety of classes and programs for every level of horseman, PtHA® has a “SPOT” for everyone. Currently, the association serves approximately 88,000 members and boasts more than 157,000 registered Pintos.
The Color Breed Congress is a 9-day horse show held in November every year in Tulsa, OK. Four breed shows all at the same time; Appaloosa Horse Club, Palomino Horse Breeders of America, American Buckskin Registry Association and Pinto Horse Association approved shows. Around 700 classes cater to all ages and levels such as youth, amateurs, novice and open. Also included will be Long Ear Congress classes, All Breed Ranch classes, NSBA dual approved classes, Cash for Color Stallion Program classes, a YEDA show and Cash Challenge classes. Prizes including saddles, saddle pads, buckles, medallions, chairs, jackets, halters, Kensington garment and duffle bags are awarded to the Color Breed Congress Champions, Reserve Champions or high point winners. It’s a family-friendly environment and a good taste of healthy competition!
We also have spots open for Youth Directors!
