On May 14, the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame & Museum will debut its newest exhibit, “War Horses: Bred to Serve.” The exhibit will highlight the special role of the U.S. Army Remount program in the progression of the American Quarter Horse bloodlines. Some of the earliest foundation horses trace back to U.S. Remounts, with many ranches owing the success of their breeding programs and initial solvency to the program.

“War Horses: Bred to Serve” will give museum visitors an opportunity to learn about the United States Remount Department, how cavalry horses were bred and acquired and how the program impacted many of the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame horses and breeders, as well as the programs of many Zoetis-AQHA Best Remuda ranches.

The funding for the “War Horses: Bred to Serve” exhibit was generously provided by John P. Collins in memory of Johanna L. Collins and Friends of the Museum.

The exhibit will run May 14 to July 26 at the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame & Museum in Amarillo.
