Written with the full participation of the American Quarter Horse Association - the largest equine breed registry in the world - The American Quarter Horse is a fully illustrated manual for prospective and novice owners and riders.
The American Quarter Horse is the world's most popular horse and America's oldest breed, with origins tracing back to the 1600s, along the eastern seaboard. Originally bred to fill colonists's passion for short-distance match racing, these heavily muscled, compact horses were perfectly suited to run faster than any other horse along narrow street. As America moved west, so did the American Quarter Horse, and pioneers quickly learned of the horse's natural ability for herding cattle. The horse's willingness, intelligence, and disposition make him the ideal choice not only for first-time owners and recreational riders, but also for riders interested in all facets of Western, English, and racing competitions. As a show horse or trail horse, the American Quarter Horse is bound to please.
