Cats may be America's most popular pet, and dogs may be man's best friend but Amarillo has fallen head over heels for the American Quarter Horse.
"Hoof Prints of the American Quarter Horse" is a city-wide public art display featuring more than 100 fiberglass replicas of an American Quarter Horse. Each horse is a work of art, prepared by a local artist and displayed as an eye-catching tribute to an animal so vital to Amarillo's past, present and future. This city-wide effort is a project of Center City of Amarillo and the title sponsor of the project is the American Quarter Horse Association. The AQHA is headquartered in Amarillo and is the world's largest equine breed registry and membership organization.
