Growing up with an American Quarter Horse teaches youth the values of compassion, dedication and hard work. They learn to become leaders and visionaries. For youth who strive to turn their passion into a career, scholarships can help make higher education affordable. The Foundation connects horses and people through charitable giving in order to develop and support programs or initiatives that preserve our horse's legacy and further the overall well-being of the American Quarter Horse and the people who comprise the Quarter Horse family.
