In many ways, the classical American QuarterHorse is a special horse – hardly a breed shows so diverse. In recent years, there also has been major specialization in the various disciplines. Anyone who wants to buy a Quarter Horse, he should have a look at the different general breeding directions.
The American Quarter Horse as a leisure time horse
Basically, all breeding directions are suited to it. Of course, you should decide especially according to the nature and training of the animal. The most Quarter Horses have a compact body and the nerves are under good control, which should be very responsive to meet your activity.
The Foundation horses / stock-type
By these breeding directions, we see moderate to heavy horses, belonging to the category of the workhorse types. Even today, they are still used for daily work on ranches. This category is ideally suited to a leisure time as well as work horse – especially for longer distances. Quarter Horses of this type have no more than 20 percent thoroughbred and have a small height.
The cow horses / cutting horses
Fast sprints. Strong. Athletic. An impressive elegance. This is a typical cow horse. These horses often have much foundation blood, have a smaller to medium height, and appear confident, agile and balanced. Leisure time riders should have their joy at this category. Highly specialised cutting horses are visually oriented, to be able to work well in the bovine animal, making it slightly less useful than leisure time horses.
The reining horses
In order to execute well the yard-long sliding stops, the reining horses must demonstrate a very good gallop and must have pronounced angulated and well muscled hind leg. The reining horses have a rather smaller to medium height. Some representatives are suitable as leisure time as well as all round horses.
The holder horses
In the United States, as everybody knows, a lot functions differently. There, the horses are bred specially for this discipline. They must be as close as possible to the ideal of Quarter Horses with pronounced muscles. In America, it is common that these animals are guided only with the hand and are not ridden. Hence, this also stems from the fact that the breeding assumes outgrowths, so that the horses can no longer be ridden without damage to health. In Europe, these horses are bred not only as holder horses – they should always be able to be ridden. These Quarter Horses are suitable as pleasure , all round and leisure time horses with a medium-sized to large height.
The pleasure horses
Typical horses of this category with medium-sized to large height have blood of holder horse in the veins. Besides Western pleasure, these elegant horses with their tranquil movements are well suitable as horsemanship, Western riding and trail horses – as well as a leisure horses.
The hunter horses
Hunter horses belong to pleasure category with a large proportion of bred blood. In this category, ground covering movements — combined with elegant appearance and a large height- are demanded. These animals are suitable as all-round and leisure time horses.
