American Quarter Horse: There are two main body types: the foundation type (commonly referred to as bulldog type) and the appendix type. The foundation type is shorter, more compact, stocky and well muscled, yet agile. The appendix type Quarter Horses are somewhat taller and smoother muscled than the stock type, more closely resembling the Thoroughbred.
