Bred to race over a quarter-mile, it is now the most popular breed in the USA. It can be traced back to horses taken to America by the Spanish Conquistadores. While Quarter horse racing still has an enthusiastic following, and the horse excels in practical ranch work, it is now more widely used for leisure - in Western-style competitions and trail riding.

Origin: USA.

Colour: any solid colour.

Height: between 14.3  and 15.3hh.

Conformation: short, wide head, deep chest and compact body, powerful hindquarters.

Character: intelligent, sensible, nimble.
