About the PHAA

The Paint Horse Association of Australia was formed in 1973 to collect, record and preserve the pedigrees of Paint Horses. Now, more than 40 years on, we have experienced enormous growth in members and the Paint Horse Breed.

'Something other than colour' was the basis for the Association. The purpose is to register, promote and keep records on a definite type - the Quarter Horse and Thoroughbred type of Paint Horse and this in itself may well account for the continuous growth of the PHAA. Members are breeding for bloodline, temperament, conformation and ability as well as colour. Proof of their breeding programmes is showing as more and more horses competing on the Open Show Circuit are commanding respect and receiving many well deserved titles and awards.

About PHAA

The Paint Horse has become an extremely popular equine breed, bringing quality, colour and versatility to a wide range of horse activities. The Association also serves as an information centre for its members and the general public on matters pertaining to shows, contests and projects designed to improve and aid the industry.
