History [ edit ]

The Quarter Horse is one of the most popular horses in the world. The American Quarter Horse Association has more two million registered horses. Also known as United States Horse, the Quarter horse is believed to be one of the first breeds to be established in the USA.

During the 17th and 18th century, Spanish conquerors brought their horses to the new lands. They were crossed with native horses and, later on, some Thoroughbred blood was also introduced.

The result was a gentle and reliable horse, fast at short distance, especially in those with a quarter of a mile. His success in these races granted the name Quarter Mile.
