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 Pinto World Championship is a 13 day horse show held in June every year in Tulsa, OK. Around 800 Classes cater to all ages and levels such as youth, amateurs, novice and open. Our classes cater to all types of equines such as Stock Type, Hunter Type, Pleasure Type, Saddle Type, Utilities, Miniatures, and Ponies. Prizes including buckles, ribbons, chairs, rose garlands, and saddles are awarded to the World Champions, Reserve World Champions or high point winners. It’s a family-friendly environment and a good taste of healthy competition. 2022 marks 57 years of the Pinto National Show now known as the Pinto World Championship.
