The mockingbird. The bluebonnet. Now the American Quarter Horse joins these two well-known Texas icons, becoming the official horse of the great state of Texas.

It’s an appropriate declaration, as Texas’ history is closely intertwined with that of the American Quarter Horse, beginning with Steel Dust, one of the forebears of the state’s more than 470,000 American Quarter Horses. In the early days, the horses were used to help settle the wild and woolly territory. Then, they were used by ranchers to round up livestock and move them to market, as well as for a little match racing on the weekends. The American Quarter Horse Association, the breed’s registry that was started in 1940 at a meeting of ranchers and horsemen at the Fort Worth Fat Stock Show, is headquartered in Amarillo in the Texas Panhandle. Today, the American Quarter Horse embodies the spirit of Texas and exemplifies the versatility of his ancestors.
