The Quarter Horse is the quintessential highly-bred American horse. Named for its ability to outdistance other horses in races of a quarter mile or less, the Quarter Horse is the mount of choice cowboys, western pleasure riders and competitors in any equine sport from rodeo to ranching. The muscular build and compact body of this horse make it well suited for work requiring speed and maneuverability. Today the American Quarter Horse is the most popular breed in the world.
