Our tour group stopped here on our way to Albuquerque. We all learned a lot about quarter horses and enjoyed the exhibits. There were three areas, one being a hands-on, interactive area that young ones would enjoy.

Quarter horse center is a great day trip for small to elementary age kids. They have a great history lesson on the quarter house and its contribution to the Texas panhandle. Lots of small hands on items for young kids to do.

This is an absolutely beautiful museum...however...if you know nothing about quarterhorses...this museum probably will be over your head. I had to use my smartphone to find out what the definition of a quarterhorse is. So....for the believers and lovers of the quarterhorse..this is mecca. For those who know nothing..hoping to learn...it assumes a level of knowledge. So...its a great special... More

Nice for a quick visit, but not much to it. A little horse information, but more about the former AQHA presidents than about horses.

A must see for horse buffs of any kind. As you enter the grand hall the feeling is beautiful. Many different sights to see. The staff was very pleasant, and gives you a warm welcome upon your arrival.

Wow! If you are into horses, no matter how much, this is your place! From the moment you step in, you are a part of horse heaven. The entrance hall is so grand...on the floor, carved in stone, is a tree of the entire quarter horse blood line. These are names that stick in your memory, like Steel Dust. Imagine... More
