Quarter Horse. Trail Extraordinaire

Image

 

The Quarter Horse was developed as an all-around work horse and for racing short distances.

This breed is the most popular in the U.S. and has the largest breed registry in the world.  This breed today can be used for pleasure riding, ranch work, racing, and as even dressage and jumping. One of their top uses, however, is trail riding.

Quarter Horses make excellent trail mounts for several reasons.

 

Their calm, easy going temperaments are legendary.

Our beautiful chocolate stallion Footwork, could be trusted with an elderly rider, or a child.

Quarter horses are often selected as a first horse for  novice adults.

These horses are powerfully built, with dense hind quarters that enable them to climb steep inclines with ease, which makes them ideal for the terrain around Castellare di Tonda, which is mountainous and challenging.

These horses have tough hooves and they are resilient enough to withstand the rocky medieval roads and other hard surfaces we come across  out on the trail.

Probably the most endearing quality of the Quarter Horse is its sweet disposition, and in fact in our entire stable of over 50 horses, we don’t have any bad natured horses. A testimony to the owners choice in breeds (Quarter, Paint, Criollo and Fjords).
