Quarter-horse mare - 'Dot Star Opie'

The American Quarter Horse, or Quarter Horse, is an American breed of horse that excels at sprinting short distances. Its name came from its ability to outdistance other horse breeds in races of a quarter mile or less; some have been clocked at speeds up to 55 mph (88.5 km/h). In the 19th century, pioneers heading West needed a hardy, willing horse. Encountering horses descended from Spanish stock, the herds of feral horses known as Mustangs, as well as horses domesticated by Native Americans - the colonial Quarter Horse was crossed with these Western horses. The pioneers found that the new crossbred had an innate “cow sense”, that is, a natural instinct for working with cattle, which in turn made it popular with cattlemen on ranches as the breed evolved. From the 17th century to the modern-day they remain a popular choice for riders, both for performance in the ring at shows as well as on the ranch. Their compact body is well-suited to the intricate and speedy manoeuvres required in reining, cutting, working cows, barrel racing, calf roping, and other western riding events.

 

Born 6th October 1998. Being over 20 years old Opie has a “been there, done that attitude”. A stalwart horse that is not phased by much, she is gentle and forgiving.
