Artwork depicting prehistoric horses with leopard spotting exists on European cave walls. But in North America, the Nez Perce Indian Tribe, who settled on reservation lands in Idaho, are credited for developing the original American breed known for its colorful mottled coat pattern. Popular as a stock horse used in a number of western riding disciplines, its vivid markings have made it a proud presence in Western movies and parades, where it is frequently dressed in traditional Native garb and trappings.
