Quarter Horse was created from a mixture of blood of Spanish horses and imported from England. It owes its name to the popular quarter mile race organized on the streets of settlements. This breed became famous because it was characterized by maneuverability, calmness, intelligence and “cattle sense”. Today, the care over the Quarter Horse race, in order to popularize and preserve its pattern, is exercised in 1940 by an association of American Quarter Horse Association breeders based in Amarillo, Texas and regional branches all over the world, including Poland. Quarter Horse horses are very popular, as useful for racing equally, but above all for reining, trail, rodeo and recreational driving.
