The American Quarter Horse Just what is an American Quarter Horse? If you have ever seen a horse in one of rodeo's timed events, been along for work on a ranch or watched a Western on the big or small screen, 9 times out of 10 you have witnessed an American Quarter Horse. These heavily muscled, compact horses could run a short distance over a straightaway faster than any other horse, and the fastest were called Celebrated American Quarter Running Horses by English colonists in the 1600s. In 1940 a registry was formed to preserve the breed which officially became the American Quarter Horse. The horses we breed here at Arrow Valley Farm are bred to be performance, and working cow horses. Visit our stallion and sales pages, for exciting opportunities to own one of these gorgeous horses.

 Texas Stray

We purchased this beautiful stallion to build on our own quarter horse herd, hoping he will improve on our mares. Stray is an absolute gentleman and a joy to ride and loves to work a cow. He has been trained in the cutting pen and been a finalist at several shows. He is extremely athletic with a lot of feel for a cow. He stands 15.2 hh and weighs about 1100 lbs. Stray has lots of winners in his lines - Cheno Pep $40,000, plus Doctor Kachina (dam) $63,000 and produced Big Swing $95,000 plus. We will stand Stray to a limited number of mares each year Take a good look at this stallion - they don't get much better. R.I.P. September  2018
