The Delmarva Paint Horse Club was formed on August 1, 1991 by a small group of Paint Horse enthusiasts who wanted to promote the American Paint Horse in the State of Delaware and on the Eastern Shores of Maryland and Virginia. At that time there were very few registered paints in this area, but the interest in the breed was quickly growing. During the late 1980's and early 90's there were also no APHA recognized shows in this area. This group of hardworking members formed the Delmarva Paint Horse Club in 1991 and immediately began planning their first APHA show to be held at the Delaware State Fairgrounds in Harrington, Delaware.
