The International Pattern Sporthorse Registry was formed by several Appaloosa enthusiasts whose primary interest was in breeding Lp-patterned horses that were potentially able to compete successfully in the sport horse disciplines against traditional warmbloods.


IPSHR is an inclusive registry for patterned horses and does not discriminate against specific breeds. Horses registered with IPSHR can be solid or patterned, as long as at least one parent is a verifiable patterned horse.  There are three pattern types accepted by IPSHR:

  • Lp-pattern: Appaloosa or Knabstrupper type markings.

  • Pinto pattern: Tobiano, Overo, Sabino & Splash patterns or any combination thereof.

  • Pintaloosa pattern: requires a combination of Lp-pattern and pinto pattern parentage.

Since many of the other registries for patterned horses have principally focused on horses for Western-type disciplines or halter horses, IPSHR provides a supportive option for patterned horses desiring a more suitable registry for their type.


The primary goal of IPSHR is to acknowledge and promote horses of patterned lineage that are sport horse in type or can exhibit athletic qualities.


IPSHR is one of the first pattern-based registries to offer inspection of conformation and movement, without excluding horses of any breed or breed combination.  Although inspection of IPSHR registered horses is optional, inspections are generally encouraged and they are required for entry into the advanced IPSHR books
