Americana #8 The Quarter Horse

By
Real Estate Broker with RE/MAX Real Estate Connections
The American colonists began importing English thoroughbred horses early in the 18th century. They were bred to race on long, smooth racetracks and not able to adapt to the short, rough colonial tracks. The colonials cross bred them with Native American Indian horses which had been developed from Iberian and Arabian stock.

As you can see in the photo below they are stockier, have shorter legs and are not as many hands as thoroughbreds - they were able to run short distances faster and were ideal on cattle and sheep ranches as the country moved westward because of their ability to make quick, sharp turns and maneuvers.

Today, they are a popular rodeo horse and are seen at both Western or English horse shows
