Just what is an American Quarter Horse? 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 seen an American Quarter Horse.
These heavily muscled, compact horses could run a short distance over a straightaway faster than any other horse, and the fastest were called Celebrated American Quarter Running Horses by English colonists in the 1600s. In 1940 a registry was formed to preserve the breed which officially became the American Quarter Horse.
Welcome to the brand new IQHA website!!! We hope you like the new look and feel. Be sure to take a look around and utilize the new tools we have for you including online membership application/renewal as well as a database to retrieve information about current membership.
As we transition with this new look and feel, we will be making changes and improvements. Please be sure to contact Ginny Tauer with your feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org
