The American Quarter Horse is an extraordinarily versatile breed, developed in this country for uniquely American horse activities: first for running short, quarter-mile sprints and later for working with cattle. This versatility explains why today the breed is three million strong, and why any fan of horse sports can see Quarter Horses competing successfully in the whole spectrum of modern competitions, from traditional Western events to show jumping and even dressage.
Now, for the first time, one of the foremost Quarter Horse judges in the world--and the president-elect of The American Quarter Horse Association (membership: 275,000)--reveals how to train and win with this athletic animal in the whole range of events in which Quarter Horses can excel. Whether they ride Western or English, riders and owners of this breed will gain invaluable, practical tips on what it takes to win from an insider who has judged the best horses in the world. Handsomely illustrated, Winning With The American Quarter Horse includes detailed information and showing advice on Halter Classes, Western Performance Classes, English Performance classes, Equitation and Horsemanship events, as well as events like barrel racing and pole bending which have rarely been dealt with elsewhere. Winning With The American Quarter Horse is a sure winner itself!
