“He is the world’s fastest horse up to and including 440 yards. He is the best all-around horse that ever stood outdoors. He has no equal as a cutting horse, roping horse, ranch horse or general purpose horse for western-type riding. He is rugged and an ideal mount for children. He is intelligent, usually gentle, and easy to keep.”
Garford Wilkinson, AQHA, from The Complete Book of The Quarter Horse by Nelson C. Nye.
