Quarter Horse Legends

On this page we show the horses we admire and use in our breeding program. These are foundation based, and maybe considered old, but they are the basis to most modern performance champions. They are not a current fad, but currently seen in many pedigrees on show performance champions in many events, from reining, cutting to roping and working cowhorse and many other events. They show their well rounded and athletic potential, as well as generations of quality, and trainablility.
