Palomino - horses for sale

The beautiful gleaming coat of the Palomino horse provides one of its iconic titles: "The Horse of the Golden West". While Palominos have come to be particularly associated with the American west, and have been the equine stars of many westerns and TV shows, there is much more to their fascinating history. Palomino is a colour rather than a breed, so individual horses of many breeds can have the characteristic golden coats with silvery or cream-coloured mane and tail. This means plenty of choice in height and conformation for anyone considering whether to buy a Palomino. Breeders who sell a Palomino know that their gorgeous coat colour is a major asset, as are their eye-catching flaxen manes and tails.

Use and characteristics of Palominos

Palominos are viewed as distinctively different from chestnut, sorrel and cream coloured horses. Their colouring results from the effects of a dilution gene on a “red” (that is, chestnut) base coat colour. The consequence is a golden colour that is often described as that of a newly-minted gold coin. In fact, up to five different shades of gold are viewed as acceptable colours by breeders when they sell a Palomino. Horses may vary in coat colour from winter to summer season, which should be born in mind when considering the time of year to buy a Palomino. To qualify as a true Palomino, a horse or pony must have a dark skin and brown, black or hazel eyes. Odd-coloured eyes are not acceptable, although some registries accept blue eyes. Palominos can have white socks or stockings, and white facial markings such as a star or blaze. A number of registries for Palominos exist world-wide, some of which are considered breed registries, although they may accept horses from a number of different breeds if they meet the appropriate standards

Origin and history of breeding Palominos

There is evidence that golden horses were known in ancient times. It’s not surprising that horses of this colour would become associated with various sun gods in their chariots. The Greeks, for instance, used the term “Xanthos”, meaning blond or golden, to describe one of a pair of immortal horses given to the hero Achilles to use in his chariot. The Turkmen Akhal-Teke breed of horse is known for the astonishing polished gold appearance of its coat, and so it seems likely that horses of this colour would be prized across Eurasia in ancient times. Modern Palominos can be traced with some confidence to the reign of Queen Isabella of Spain (1599 – 1600) who is said to have cherished horses of this colour. Palominos first bore the name “Isabellas” in recognition of this, and are later said to have acquired their alternative name in the New World in honour of the Spanish nobleman Juan de Palomino. However, the term Isabella to describe a pale yellow colour is known to have existed before the reign of Queen Isabella, and it has also been suggested that the name comes from a variety of golden grape.

Palominos in equestrianism

Showy Palominos are always the stars of any parade! Trigger, one of the horses belonging to Roy Rogers, is probably the most famous Palomino. Standing 15.3 hands (63 inches, 160 cm) high, Trigger was 31 when he died. Mr Ed, the Talking Horse, was another celebrity Palomino who achieved fame on TV. Today, some of the best Palominos are also representatives of outstanding breeds such as Morgan and Quarter Horses, Tennessee Walking Horses and American Saddlebreds. The favourite horse of Elvis Presley was Rising Sun, a Palomino Quarter Horse.
