"King Ranch Quarter Horses – The West was won on horseback, so it is only fitting that the birthplace of American ranching should also be the center of excellence for great ranch horses. From the earliest days, as he did with his hardscrabble longhorn range cattle, Richard King aggressively and relentlessly upbred the stallions and mares of the Wild Horse Desert whose descendants would become some of the finest quarter horses in the world. The legendary Kineño vaqueros and many of Captain King’s descendants who have been devoted to the ranching life through the generations have made top quality horses a clear priority on King Ranch. King Ranch’s quarter horse and thoroughbred programs trace back to Richard King and his son-in-law, Robert Kleberg, Sr. , who were constantly searching for better-blooded stallions to upgrade their horse stock. In 1915, Bob Kleberg, Jr. , King’s grandson, bought OLD SORREL, a colt who became the foundation sire that made King Ranch famous as a breeder of champion quarter horses. Every horse on King Ranch is still descendant of OLD SORREL." 8 appendices; bibliography; index.
