SYMBOLS OF THE WEST
The American West was won on the backs of the stock horses who would become the American Quarter Horse, and today, ranchers still depend on them to run their ranches. A ranch's animals can roam over thousands of acres, so livestock and horse branding become a necessity.
Ranching outfit has their own unique brand - usually a combination of symbols, letters, and numbers - many now are as historic as the ranches they represent! Bandera's glowing metallic coat is covered with a beautiful array of ranch brands and symbols, in homage to the heritage of the working Quarter Horse.
