Quarter Horses

First bred by English settlers in America during the 17th century, the Quarter horse got its name after the quarter-mile sprints they ran. They were developed by cross breeding the Thoroughbred and the native mares brought to America by Spanish explorers. These horses make great cow ponies, are popular in the show ring and compete in rodeos as well as used for general riding.
