Because that’s how the American Quarter Horse was born in neighboring Louisiana in the 1800s — running-horses, right? From matched races along plowed Cajun cotton fields and East Texas bush tracks, right?
You get the picture. Contrasted with Thoroughbred racing in Kentucky Blue Grass country, these quarter-mile “short races” produced that celebrated running animal called “the short horse” …. the American Quarter Horse!
Lana’s vision statement? “Of a good beginning cometh a good end!” … She asks “If you don’t set the foundation for the future, how can you ever have one?”.

Lana balances the horses’ breeding with the environment on the farm, the atmosphere — that good salty Gulf air drifting in over her pastures – how it enhances the lung capacity of these new babies that have just hit the ground running! — the handling, and most of all, the attitude.
That attitude is called love. Love for the horses, for their destinies … and for the traditions. Love is how you cultivate your “jeweler’s eye.” You can have it, too. Come on out to Lana Weaver’s in the cradle of the Quarter Horse.
