About American Indian Horses
American Indian Horses (also
known as cow ponies, buffalo horse, mustang, Indian pony, cayuse, or Spanish
pony) are descended from horses brought to the Americas by Spanish conquistadors
American Indian Horses proved
to be tough and thrived on the grassy plains of the Americas.
American Indian Horse’s registry
was created in 1961. The organization was started for the purpose of
collecting, recording, and preserving the pedigrees of American Indian Horses.
