Eastern States Exposition, Massachusetts Quarter Horse Spring Show
May 15 - May 18
Vendors at the show will be selling everything from tac supplies to clothing such as t-shirts, boots, hats and jeans, as well as jewelry and other items bearing the likeness of horses.
The Quarter Horse got its name because of its fast speed, 50 miles per hour or slightly more. It is known for outdistancing other horses in quarter-mile races, especially in Virginia in the late 1700s.
