About The Camarillo White Horse:

DSC_0397_unicorn.jpg

In 1921 Adolfo Camarillo bought a pure white stallion at the Sacramento State Fair. A stallion that would become the foundation for a new breed and start a family tradition. Stunningly white in color. There are less than 30 of them worldwide. They carry a specific gene mutation that prevents the coat from expressing color. A mutation that is only found in the Camarillo White Horse. They are born white, unlike grey horses that are born dark and lighten with age. The breed became known in California as a flashy parade and performance horse. Famous faces seen riding them included President Harding and movie star Leo Carillo. They are used in a wide variety of disciplines from ranch sorting to jumping and dressage.

“It's all about getting the best possible horse, and hopefully in a white wrapper.” ~Harold Parker. Great grandson of Adolfo Camarillo.
