The Pinto descends from the Spanish horses exported to America in the sixteenth century. The Pinto, also called the Paint Horse or Calico, is a type of horse distinguished by its coloration and is found all over the world.

The Pinto Horse Association was established in Ellington, Connecticut in 1956 and recognized the Pinto as a breed in 1963.

The American Indian favored the Pinto for its unusual coloring and also because the blotched coat was a natural camouflage. The Pinto was also popular with the western cowboys.
