“Pride of the Nez Perce
Through selective breeding, the Nez Perce Native American tribe is widely credited with creating the Appaloosa horse. The Appaloosa is known extensively for its uniquely spotted coat, but the Nez Perce were also careful to breed for endurance, courage, intelligence and a quiet nature. To them, the Appaloosa was not simply a beast of burden, but a member of the family - and it still is to this day. “Pride of the Nez Perce” is a celebration of this special relationship, and an offering of gratitude to the tribe for the gift they have provided in creating the magnificent Appaloosa.
