The quarter horse breed is recognized as one of the oldest horse breeds in the United States. Originating in 1660 as a cross between Spanish and English horses, it has become the most popular horse breed in the United States with over 5 million horses registered in American Quarter Horse Association’s stud book.

Nicknamed “the world’s fastest athlete,” quarter horses clock in an average speed of 55 miles per hour and are known for being multi-talented. They are capable of various tasks such as dressage, hunting, jumping, and mounted athletics, among many others. The quarter horse is also used in several equestrian disciplines and is associated with the Western rodeo. Moreover, it has been noted that quarter horses have a natural cow sense which allows them to work well with cattle.
