A breed is defined as a group of animals with a specific set of characteristics that set the group apart from all other breeds in the animal kingdom.

When these characteristics are defined, they make up what is called the Breed Standard (also known as the Standard of Perfection or the Breed Profile).

Pintabian horses, and their crossbred counterparts, PartPintabianTM pleasure variety equines, are considered by many to be some of the most beautiful horses in the world.
