Answer: PAINT horse.

     The spots on an Appaloosa have a wide range of colors and patterns.  In contrast, Paint horses usually have dark patches with a white background.

     Appaloosas and Paints are alike because both are used for Western riding, and sometimes they are shown in competition for prizes if they are beautiful.  Both breeds are naturally good at herding cattle and other farm animals.  They both are used for barrel racing, roping cattle, walking in parades and bronco riding.
