QUOTE FROM AQHA WEBSITE
"If you have ever seen a horse in one of rodeo's timed events, been along for work on a ranch or watched a Western on the big or small screen, 9 times out of 10 you have witnessed an American Quarter Horse."
"Breed the Quarter Horse
back into the Quarter Horse."
NFQHA is founded on the philosophy that the more Quarter Horse blood a horse carries, the more Quarter Horse traits it will exhibit. These traits include a high degree of intelligence, a calm, quiet, kind, and willing disposition; and a heavily muscled body with a low center of gravity, carried on sound bone and feet. NFQHA believes these mental and physical traits combine in the National Foundation Quarter Horse to form the world’s most Versatile horse.
