AMERICAN QUARTER HORSE HALL OF FAME AND MUSEUM
Thoroughbred racehorses and other
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./
