Artist's Description

The beautiful Appaloosa is a breed of horse, and not a color. Not all Appaloosas have a coat pattern; Appaloosas can come in solid colors as well. And there is much more to the Appaloosa than its color or coat pattern.

Appaloosa horses, based on Spanish stock, were originally bred in the Inland northwest of America by the Nez Perce Indians, the only Native Americans known to selectively breed their horses. The breed almost died out after the U.S. cavalry slaughtered the Indian’s horses after chasing the tribe into the Bear Paw mountains of Montana.

Appaloosas are very versatile having great endurance and excellent dispositions. They are hardy, strong, fast, sure footed and have a quiet temperament. Although they can be stubborn, most Appaloosas are extremely intelligent and willing.

Tthe Appaloosa is used in a wide variety of sports, from rodeo, to jumping, and showing, and it is a good trail riding and long distance horse.
