Our mission

The American Roan Horse Association is a secondary breed registry for roan horses of AQHA, APHA, ApHC, PHBA and IBHA bloodlines.  Our purpose is to define, promote and enhance the enjoyment of roan horse ownership by providing a registry and communication venues to facilitate member participation through showing, breeding, and competing.  


While showing at AQHA, APHA, ApHC, PHBA, IBHA, PtHA, ABRA, NSBA and other venues, horses and members have the opportunity to earn special awards and titles.  Learn about our premier programs, the Fast 50+High Point +, and High Point Youth.

"Roan" refers to a horse coat color pattern characterized by an even mixture of colored and white hairs on the body, while the head and "points"—lower legs, mane and tail—are mostly solid-colored. Horses with roan coats have white hairs evenly intermingled throughout any other color. The head, legs, mane and tail have fewer scattered white hairs or none at all. The roan pattern is dominantly-inherited, and is found in many horse breeds. While the specific mutation responsible for roan has not been exactly identified, a DNA test can determine zygosity for roan in several breeds. True roan is always present at birth, though it may be hard to see until after the foal coat sheds out.  read more
