There has never been a documented Purebred Appaloosa in history. The International Colored Appaloosa Association (ICAA) is the first and only stand-alone Appaloosa registry created to produce eight-generation+ Purebred Appaloosa horses by the full-generational concept; a method recognized by animal scientists and geneticists. The ICAA does not allow outcrossing to other breeds within our registry. As a stand-alone registry, registration with another registry is not required if the offspring are out of ICAA-registered stock.
The ICAA welcomes your lower-level horses into the registry as well as the higher levels, as their genetics are extremely important to the health of the registry through genetic diversity well into the future. The ICAA was the first stock horse registry to require negative genetic test results for genetic diseases to qualify for registration; also for the health of the registry.
The ICAA is completely volunteer, costs for membership and registration are extremely low, and pedigrees are carefully documented for accuracy and each foal born is the actual product of the sire and dam indicated on the Registration Application.
We believe the true Appaloosa is an honest all-around hard-working family horse that deserves recognition throughout the world. The Appaloosa is known for its athletic ability, devoted and loyal heart, durability, versatility, and gentle, willing disposition.

The ICAA is the only stand-alone Appaloosa registry that does not allow crossbreeding to other breeds within the registry - Appaloosa x Appaloosa only.
An ICAA registration speaks volumes to those who care about the future of the breed.
Become a part of an association with the goal of preserving the Appaloosa as a blood breed; an association that appreciates those who work hard to produce these multiple-generation horses, and promotes both the horses and their owners. Be a part of a registry where your voice is heard.
