    PHBA (palomino)
    IBHA (buckskin) - I think there's another one, too?
    PtHA (pinto)
    APHA (Paint) also see above
    ApHA (appaloosa)
    ? (POA) - app ponies, but it should qualify, I'd think

    There's probably been 10 more added since I was following that kind of stuff, but hope this helps!

    Light or saddle horse breeds
    Heavy or draft horse breedsThis page is a list of horse and pony breeds, and also includes terms used to describe types of horses that are not breeds but are commonly mistaken for breeds. A breed is defined generally as a viable true-breeding population, and its members are called "purebreds." In most cases, bloodlines are recorded with a breed registry. However, in horses, the concept is somewhat flexible, as open stud books are created for fairly new types of horses that are not yet fully true-breeding. There are also a number of "color breed", sport horse, and gaited horse registries for horses with various phenotypes or other traits, which admit any animal fitting a given set of physical characteristics, even if there is minimal or no evidence of the trait being a true-breeding characteristic.

    For additional information, see horse breeding and the individual articles listed below. Additional articles on different breeds may be listed under Category:Horse breeds and Category:Types of horses.

    [edit] Horse breeds
    Main article: Horse
    Horses are members of Equus caballus that generally mature to be 14.2 hands (58 inches (150 cm)) or taller, but many breed registries do accept animals under this height and classify them as "horses," as horse characteristics include factors other than height. For the purposes of this page, if a breed registry or stud book classifies the breed as a horse, it is listed here as a horse, even if some representatives are pony-sized or have some pony characteristics.

    [edit] Pony breeds
    Main article: Pony
    Ponies are usually classified as animals that mature at less than 14.2 hands. However, some pony breeds may occasionally have individuals who mature over 14.2 but retain all other breed characteristics. There are also some breeds that now frequently mature over 14.2 hands due to modern nutrition and management, yet retain the historic classification "pony." For the purposes of this list, if a breed registry classifies the breed as a "pony," it is listed here as such, even if some individuals have horse characteristics.

    (Please note: Because of this designation by the preference of a given breed registry, most miniature horse breeds are listed as "horses," not ponies)

    [edit] Color "breeds"
    Main article: Color breed
    There are some registries that accept horses (and sometimes ponies and mules) of almost any breed or type for registration. Color is either the only criterion for registration or the primary criterion. These are called "color breeds," because unlike "true" horse breeds, there are few other physical requirements, nor is the stud book limited in any fashion. As a general rule, the color also does not always breed on (in some cases due to genetic impossibility), and offspring without the stated color are usually not eligible for recording with the color breed registry. The best-known color breed registries are for the following colors:

    Buckskin (horse)
    Pinto horse
    White (horse)s are registered in the United States with the American creme and white horse registry, which was once called an "Albino" registry until it was understood that true albino does not exist in horses. (see White (horse) for details)
    There are breeds that have color that usually breeds "true" as well as distinctive physical characteristics and a limited stud book. These horses are true breeds that have a preferred color, not color breeds, and include the Friesian horse, the Cleveland Bay, the Appaloosa, and the American Paint Horse.

    from Wikipedia. They make sense.

    Buckskins can also be IBRA and ABRA in addition to IBHA.

    LOL, I know I've been away from it awhile! I am positive there were only 2 buckskin associations way back when! I remember reading in the Western Horseman's breed issue one year and there was a new association for Gray and Roans....

    Oooh, ooohh, isn;t there some association for brindle horses, too?

    There needs to be a "That There's One Funky Colored F-er" horse registry, would make things a lot simpler should think.

    The Rocky mountain was started as a color - Now, the animal does have to be certrified (gait wise) but it WAS started as a color. The orig sire was Toby and bred for his color and nothing else.

    I learned more about that breed tbitt!!

    Spotted Mountain Horses... not Rocky...

    It can really get confusing!

    Here is what I received in an email from a breeder. I have edited some of it ;)

    "There are four main mountain horse registries, Rocky Mountain, Mountain Pleasure, Kentucky Mountain and now Spotted Mountain. All started from the same foundation stallions and mares but differences of opinion caused them to start their own registries.

    Mountain Pleasure is the smallest group.

    Rockies may be a little more high strung horses due to the breeding for the chocolate color.

    Kentuckies left their registration open the longest of the first three, just to keep the blood lines a little more diversified.

    The Spotted Mountains are actually more of an offshoot of the Kentuckies. Their registry is still open to build up the ranks. That's why you'll see Spotted Mountains that are dual registered with Spotted Saddle Horses. "

    hey Tammy... don't you own one of these breeds?

    No, I own a Tennessee Walker (TW)..........

    I almost bought a Rocky..........once, but I declined.

    Spotted Saddle horses came from "wrong colored" :p TW............. ::)

    Interesting that Wikipedia says the Paint horse is not a color breed, and I have seen many Paints in the local color breed classes :-
