Hi I’m Flash & I'm Grainger! Nice to meet ya! – We're the 15 hand, 15 year old chestnut Quarter Horses. We love to help & we're so patient!
The Quarter Horse was originally bred to walk slowly around one’s hundred-acre farm. So being quiet & slow is in its blood. Some breed historians have maintained that it is the oldest breed of horses in the United States and that the true beginning of the Quarter Horse was in the Carolinas and Virginia. The cowman found the Quarter Horse quick to start, easy to handle, and of a temperament suitable for handling cattle under a wide variety of conditions.
From a therapy standpoint, the Quarter Horse is most excellent. Having a low-key attitude and pace make it very suitable breed for therapeutic riding.
