Quarter Horse Country
Because of its location in the midst of beautiful fields, Whitesboro is known as one of the main Quarter Horse locations in Texas – and in the entire country! In the center of town, you’ll still find the old well that once attracted the town’s residents so that they could get water for their families and their quarter horses. Though no one uses the well to water the horses any more, you’ll still find plenty of Quarter Horses in and around Whitesboro today.
In fact, many of the town’s main events revolve around horses – from horse shows to festivals where rider-horse pairs compete against one another in barrel racing and other traditional Quarter Horse events.
You probably won’t find a Quarter Horse walking through downtown Whitesboro these days, but take a drive on the back roads outside of town, and you’ll see what we mean! The ranches surrounding Whitesboro include Humphrey Quarter Horses, Don Ham Quarter Horses, Tallent Quarter Horses, Casey Hinton Quarter Horses, Kyle Ranch, Larson Performance Horses, and more.
In fact, all of these top-notch ranches, which breed, train, and show Quarter Horses and other reining horse breeds, are known throughout the world for their wonderful animals. Located close to the Dallas Fort Worth Airport, Whitesboro makes the perfect location for a high-class horse ranch operation to go global, and many of these ranches sell, race, and show their horses around the country and around the world!
