National Western has horse events for everyone
• American Quarter Horse Show
This horse is said to be the fastest breed of horse over a quarter of a mile, hence its name. Begun in colonial America, the Quarter Horse was bred both to work and race, and is now the invaluable cow horse that helped settle the West. Shown as a western pleasure horse, he is steady and ready to use his muscular body at a smooth jog all day. He can also become the finest cutting horse and working horse in the world. At the National Western Horse Show, you will see the Quarter Horse shown Jan. 6-12, 2013 at halter, in western performance and working divisions and as an English hunt-seat horse.
