Developed in 17th century Virginia, Quarter Horses are the first breed of horse to originate in the United States. Their name is derived from the straight quarter-mile track they ran during America's first foray into equestrian racing. A sprinter, the Quarter Horse has keen cow sense. It is as much a symbol of the American West as the cowboy it carries. A tribute to the storied Quarter Horse, this square wall calendar will please cowboys, cowgirls, and horse lovers across the board.
