American Quarter Horse


American Quarter Horse
Adherents claim the American Quarter Horse was the first breed of horse native to the United States. It evolved by mixing bloodlines of horses brought to the New World. Its genetics include Arab, Turk and Barb breeds. Selected stallions and mares were crossed with horses brought to Colonial America from England and Ireland in the early 1600s. Colonists prized the breed for its short-distance racing abilities. It is the horse most associated with Western ranching and rodeo.
