Inscription.  The foundation and framework of today's international equine industry originated here. This history began over 250 years ago, on an unusual geologic and topographic stage. The founding sires and dams of the Thoroughbred and Standardbred horse breeds grazed these pastures, along with the root stock of the great western free-range cattle herds.
