About the Quarter Horse Show
The Quarter Horse is an American original. In fact, it was the first horse breed developed in America, tracing its origin all the way back to the Colonial era. These horses are heavily muscled and compact, and were originally bred to run a short distance faster than any other horse. Today, the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) is the world’s largest horse breed association, and Texas is ranked #1 in Quarter Horse population. Known for its versatility and athleticism, the Quarter Horse is also highly intelligent and has an excellent temperament. They can be found on the ranch, in the show ring, on the trail, and in the rodeo arena throughout the world.
