Curious to see if the "paint horses are slow" stigma is still popular? I'm starting a breeding program of ruby/pink buckle barrel horses. I've always loved paints. Loud and flashy color or breeding stock, both have always shown great disposition as well as being some of the fastest horses I've rode. Fallon Taylor just recently purchased/standing a well bred barrel paint stud, so I do believe paint horses can change the barrel industry given the chance with the right breeding.

 

I would like to know if there are people out there who would like to see paints over take the barrel pen, running in the NFR. And erase the stigma once and for all. OR is there solid proof, numbers, facts out there to prove they are statistically slower.

 

Thank you!

I can't really answer your question since I only run at the local level, but I love my little paint mare. She loves her job and gives me 110%. I always said there's no bad color for a good horse.

I ride a paint, even though not a barrel horse yet. Paints are just QH or TB with the awesome paint coloring. Mine has all the QH greats on his pedigree, goes back to Man O War. They couldn't possibly be known as "slow."

Not only are paints known as being slow but also they are known as being crazy. Before you come for me, remember that every legend starts with a kernel of truth.

I've had two exceptional paint barrel horses.  I would buy another in a heart beat!

I would venture to say that probably as many as a third of the top 1D horses are solid color paints. I have a friend who was a premier breeder of racing paints in the 90's. He was one of the first breeders to ship horses to Brazil and shipped the first paint. I believe CHEROKEE INDIAN. I have a paint that I raised and he placed in the money in the 2D in NE TX competition the first time he ever ran in any competition. He's not solid color. He is smart and far for an idiot. He does not like being slapped around or jerked on. He doesn't have to worry about that around here. That is my paint in my avatar.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with a good paint BUT from a long time breeder, they are harder to sell for whatever reason. From my stand point---it costs the same to feed a paint broodmare as it does a QH one---why feed the one whose baby is going to be harder to sell and bring less money. Sure, this can change---but it will be an uphill battle and you better be in it for the long haul, 10-15 years, to get it accomplished.

I had a QH colt born with excessive white. I double registered him AQHA/APHA.  It was pretty expensive, but for the PBRIP incentive, I thought it was worth it.

I think paints and appys both carry stigmas for whatever reason, however the market for either are narrow, but it is there! If they continue to have good cross bred incentives, we may see your traditional QH peeps cross over to not have such thick competition in some areas. I love my appy that I've got at the moment for her color and breeding. I did own a pair of paint horses and they were antything but slow.
