Quarter Horses

Quarter Horse was the first to be developed in America. They appeared in the United States by the year 1600. The first animals originated were brought from Turkey and Arabia to North America by Spanish explorers and traders.

Selected stallions were crossed with mares from England in 1611. The cross produced compact horses, with strong muscles; they could run short distances faster than any other race.

Working in the field, the horse was becoming specialized in working with livestock. On weekends, the settlers entertained themselves by promoting racing on the streets and roads of the fields near the crops, with the distance of a quarter mile (402 meters) then leading the horse's name.

Agro Betel Company is specialized in Quarter Horse reproduction recognized nationally as the great breeder of quarter horse race.
