The Palomino Horse has found himself the center of attention throughout history. We've witnessed him on the silver screen, as our very own childhood heroes, commanding Colorado Boulevard during the New Year's Day Rose Bowl Parade, and most importantly, in our barns, with our children and center stage in the world's most prestigious competition arenas.

The Foundation not only serves as a preservation body, but as an organization dedicated to providing a comprehensive database of those who sacrificed the most, and for the horses that still live strong in our Hall of Fame.

We hope you can find time to visit us for a walk down memory lane, but until you do, please take a look at an abbreviated version of our digital displays (coming soon!) honoring the history of the Palomino Horse and those who have made this majestic animal an icon for future generations to cherish.
