Athletic, Versatile, and Honest. These are the hallmarks of American Blazer Horses. Developed by Idaho equestrian F. Neil Hinck in 1959, Blazer Horses were designed to be user-friendly-built in the image of the usable ranch-style horses that helped settle the American West. They demonstrate great athleticism, incredible soundness, and keen intellect. But most owners love them for their heart, as this unique breed is specifically bred for a gentle and willing disposition. Blazers are solid colored horses, standing between 13 and 15 hands at maturity, and must be a direct descendant of foundation sire Little Blaze to qualify for registration.
The American Blazer Horse Association was founded in 1967, and reincorporated in 2006 as a member-owned nonprofit. The organization encourages, supports, and celebrates the endeavors of Blazer Horses, and preserves the breed's history and registry. A nine member board guides the association with input from members and Blazer Horse owners around the nation.
