About Camarillo White HorsesAbout Camarillo White Horses



Camarillo White Horses are famous for their brilliant whiterncolor.

rnrnThe story of Camarillo White horses start in 1921 whenrnAdolfo Camarillo purchased a 9-year-old stallion named Sultan at the CaliforniarnState Fair in Sacramento. He then went on to breed Sultan with Morgan mares at hisrnranch in California up until his death in 1958. His daughter Carmen thenrncontinued breeding and showing the horses at parades and events until her deathrnin 1987. As per her will, the horses were then sold at public auction.

rnrnFour years after the horses were auctioned off in 1987,rntheir number had dwindled down to 11. In an attempt to save the breed and bringrnattention to it, the Camarillo White Horse Association was founded in 1992. Tornavoid inbreeding, the registry has an open stud book, requiring least onernparent to be of Camarillo's original stock, but allowing the other parent to bernfrom various breeds, including Andalusian and Standardbred bloodlines. Theyrnalso maintain a separate record of non-white foals from these bloodlines. As ofrn2010, there were 20 Camarillo White Horses known to be living.

rnrnCamarillo White Horses have pink skin under their coat.rnTheir coat is white from birth throughout their life. They have a compact andrnrefined build with a small and neat head, muscular limbs, an expressive face,rnlarge eyes, and pronounced withers, laid back shoulders, a well-arched neck,rnand a long back. Their average weight is 1,250 pounds. The current range inrnheight is 14.2 to nearly 17 hands. 

rnrnAn international study recently determined that thernCamarillo White Horse carries a unique mutations that is responsible for its consistantrncoat color. With two white horses (Ww) breeding, there is only a 50 percentrnchance of producing a living white horse (Ww). There is also a 25 percentrnchance of producing a non-white horse (ww), and a 25 percent chance ofrnproducing a dead foal (WW). The W gene is dominant. If a horse carries therngene, it will be white. If the horse is not white, it means the horse does notrncarry the white gene. It can not produce any white offspring if bred to anotherrnnon-white horse. Breeders of true white horses generally cross them onrnnon-white horses, because the statistical probability of a white foal is thernsame without the risk of producing a stillborn foal. In addition, because therernare different genetics involved, the offspring will not carry the genes forrnLethal white syndrome.

Camarillo White Horses are warmblooded and belong to thernRiding group of horses. It is used for endurance riding, general riding, parades,rnand work.
