About Buckskin HorsesAbout Buckskin Horses



Buckskin Horses are not a specific breed, they are horsesrnthat have a common color - tan or bronze coloring with black points. A true Buckskinrnshould be the color of tanned deer hide with black points. Shades may vary fromrnyellow to dark gold. Points (mane, tail, and legs) can be dark brown, or black.rnPonies and horses showing predominance of draft horse blood are not eligible. rnrn 

rnrnBuckskins developed a strong reputation as a sturdy workingrnhorse in the frontier of the western United States. They were highly regardedrnby the cowboys of the old west, Buckskins were used for pack, harness, andrnsaddle. rnrn 

The American Buckskin Registry Association was founded inrn1962, it opened its registry to not only the Buckskin, but also Grulla and Dunrncolored horses. Also included in the colors accepted is Red Dun with varyingrnbody shades of red, and the Mouse Dun or Coyote Dun, a slate color resembling arnsalt-and-pepper coloration. Most Buckskins are of Spanish origin, European ponyrnorigin, or of America's Norfolk Trotter origin. This is mainly due to the factrnthat Dun coloration in these bloodlines was not frowned upon as it was withrnhorses that contained Arab background. Any horse that is registered with thernABRA can also be registered in any other breeding association.rnrn rnrn 

rnrnIt should be noted that the American Buckskin RegistryrnAssociation has put forth a great effort to put emphasis on the conformation ofrnthe horses in its registry. The Buckskin will not enter any horse into itsrnregistry that shows signs of below-average conformation, regardless of therndesired coloring.
