Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book profiles more of the horses who have gained fame in the Quarter Horse industry. Some of the featured stallions played key roles in the formation of the breed, before the American Quarter Horse Association was established in 1940. Other horses featured became household names during the early years of the association, and are still appreciated today for their contributions to contemporary racing and performance bloodlines.Each chapter profiles a specific horse, and includes a four-generation pedigree, a summary of the horse's performance record and sire or production record, and many photographs - some of which have rarely been seen.Each chapter was written by a writer who is most familiar with the horse, or with his/her history. (8 x 11, 192 pages, b&w photos)

Synopsis:

Features articles about 23 influential Quarter Horse stallions and mares who gained fame in the early days of the AQHA.
