AMERICAN CREME AND WHITE HORSE
Also referred to as the American Albino breed, the American
Creme and White, is colored true white, with pink skin and
dark brown eyes. The first was born in 1908, named "Old King",
in Illinois. A very stocky horse, he stood at 15.2 hands,
had strong muscles, straight legs, and weighted near 1200
pounds. Old King was purchased by two brothers hoping to use
him to develop a new breed in 1917. The brothers bred horses
with very scientific methods, and were successful in creating
the new breed of American Creme and White.
In 1936, one of the brothers and his wife promoted the American
Albino horse throughout horse shows in the United States and
Canada. In 1937, the couple developed the American Albino
Horse Club (AAHC) to record the horses that came from Old
American Creme and White horses were originally used for
driving, riding, jumping, dressage, farming and circus tricks.
Most of the breed are extremely gentle and intelligent. Now
the horses are very versatile and used for English riding,
show and pleasure as well as Western show and pleasure riding,
endurance competitions, jumping, parade, working stock horses,
and the entertainment industry. The horses often win awards
and top honors at shows.
In order for a horse to be considered an American Albino/American
Creme and white, the horses must have pink skin and be white
without any pigmentation of the hair. All eye colors are acceptable.
When American White horses are bred, they will produce 50%
white foals when bred with colored horses. Sometimes, even
when breeding an American White with another White and Creme,
the result will be a colored foal!

The American Walking Pony was produced by the foundation
of the Tennessee Walking Horse and the Welsh Pony. The ponies
are large, about 14 hands in height and look like an Arabian
horse. The American Walking Pony was featured in many horse
magazines and suddenly, people around the world wanted to
purchase horses from the breeding.
The American Walking Pony has many unique gaits, including
the Merry Walk, the canter, and the Pleasure Walk. Due to
breeding involving the Welsh Pony, the American Walking Pony
is also a superb jumper and is highly successful in open shows
as a Pony Hunter. Walking Ponies are extremely versatile animals.
It is said by many that there is no experience like riding
an American Walking Pony. They ride smooth and light, unique
to the breed.
