What is The Cuban Pinto?

The Cuban Pinto, or Pinto Cubano, is a horse breed descended from the Criollo horses brought to the island in the 15th century

It is a rather calm and docile horse, and is commonly used as a mount by cattle ranch hands and in the tourism industry for trail riding

The Cuban Pinto is of average size, and typically stands between 14 and 14.3 hands high

It has a compact, well-muscled and strong body. Coat colour patterns differ and both the tobiano (spotted) and the overo (white over dark) patterns appear in Cuban Pinto horses

Its muscular body type and working ability is due to its Quarter Horse ancestry, while its pleasing and harmonious conformation is derived from its Thoroughbred ancestors
