Dunlee the Quarter Horse

This is Dunlee our Kaimanawa/ American Quarter Horse cross. 

When horse racing developed in America in the 17th and 18th centuries they were often run over shorter courses than the classic English races. The quarter horse developed as a breed that excelled at sprinting over the quarter mile course, hence the name.

Their speed and agility later made them a firm favorite with the cowboys of the old west.
