The American Quarter Horse is known around the world for its versatility, athleticism and gentle temperament. These traits make off-the-track Quarter Horses uniquely suited for second careers once they retire as racehorses.
These retired racehorses are in high demand for many purposes, including barrel racing, rodeo, roping, horse shows, jumping, dressage, ranching and trail riding. An educated horseman can transition a retired racehorse to a second career where many have gone on to be highly successful, competing to the highest levels of competition, such as the Farnam AQHA World Championship Show or the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.
