Horses in Texas

The economic impact of the Texas horse industry

The latest statistics for the Texas horse population suggest there are 882,900 horses in the state, meaning that it retains its long-held top ranking in terms of numbers. This is despite a decline from 978,800 in 2005. Figures from the 1990s put the population at over one million. Nonetheless, horse ownership in Texas is healthy and contributes around $3.5 billion directly to the economy annually. The total economic contribution is around $5.9 billion. The horse industry also supports 52,000 full and part-time jobs.

The history of horses in Texas

The classic equestrian image of Texas is the cowboy, driving herds of cattle long distances across dusty landscapes. For many people, it’s an image that epitomizes America. Cattle certainly played an important role in the state's history and still does today. Yet, there is much more to Texas, and its development reveals the complexity of the American story. In pre-Columbian days, indigenous people with diverse ways of life occupied the region. Horses arrived early in the days of European exploration in Texas, probably introduced by Spanish explorers and missionaries from 1542 onwards. From 1684 to 1689, the remote and sparsely inhabited region was under French control, becoming Spanish territory from 1690 to 1821. After that, it was Mexican Texas until the creation of the Republic of Texas in 1821. Thus, Texas horsemanship encompasses not just the classic cowboy tradition, which in any case owes much to Spanish Vaquero culture, and other influences.

The use of the horse also brought great changes to the Native Americans of the region, particularly those whose lives depended on buffalo. Previously they had followed the herds on foot, and horses made their hunting more efficient and deadly. Horses were subsequently involved in all the conflicts on this disputed land. It was largely in Texas that the American Quarter Horse, famed as a quarter-mile sprinter on America's east coast, transformed into the classic cow horse. Agile, intelligent, and supremely versatile, the American Quarter Horse is the most numerous horse breed today. Along with the AQH, Texas is also home to some of America’s most iconic feral horses, the Mustangs. Horses were also invaluable in Texas's cotton and lumber industries and even continued to play their part in the early days of the Texas oil boom. Today, the plains of North Texas provide the best horse country in the state.

Horse Associations in Texas

Befittingly, given the state’s long-standing connection to the breed, the American Quarter Horse Association has its headquarters in Amarillo, Texas. There is also a museum dedicated to the AQH. The working horse traditions of Texas are represented by the National Cutting Horse Association, which is based in Fort Worth, Texas. The National Reined Cowhorse Association headquarters are in Pilot Point, Texas. This state enthusiastically supports all kinds of equestrianism.

Most famous horses in Texas

Ask about the famous horse names of Texas, and the talk will turn to Steel Dust. This racing stallion is believed to have had the most influence on the Texan American Quarter Horse. Steel Dust was foaled in Kentucky in 1843. He was brought to Texas as a yearling. After retiring from racing due to injury, Steel Dust became a popular sire of Quarter Horse cow horses. His descendants even became known as Steeldusts. Many tales and fables have also grown up around the Mustangs of Texas. Their names reflect their legendary status: the Black Devil, for example, and the Pacing White Stallion. Capturing and taming a wild horse was part of the cowboy experience and has an important role in many books, movies, and TV series.

Basic information about Texas
