Larger-than-life bronze stat­ues of Quar­ter Horses greet vis­i­tors ar­riv­ing at the Amer­i­can Quar­ter Horse As­so­ci­a­tion Hall of Fame and Mu­seum. In­side, the Grand Hall is lined with bronze plaques honoring the peo­ple and horses who earned places in the Hall of Fame of the world’s largest breed reg­istry, which cel­e­brated its 75th an­niver­sary in 2015.

Ex­hibits tell the story of this ver­sa­tile breed, and in­ter­ac­tive sta­tions teach vis­i­tors about horse care, feeding, con­for­ma­tion and anatomy. An­nual events in­clude the Amer­ica’s Horse in Art Show and Sale and a Youth Art Show. “Whether you own an Amer­i­can Quar­ter Horse or not,” says Cailin Cald­well, the AQHA’s mar­ket­ing and ad­ver­tis­ing co­or­di­na­tor, “the mu­seum has some­thing for every­one.” For more in­for­ma­tion, go to www.aqha. com/mu­seum./
