'Halter' Quarter Horses vs. 'working' Quarter Horses:
Halter is a discipline where horses are not being ridden, but are rather led by hand, and judged based on their appearance and movement. The Quarter Halter Horses who are bred for halter shows, have a conformation that is actually different from that of the iconic "working" Quarter Horses (see the 'American Quarter Stock Horse' breed.)
First, Quarter Halter Horses have a smaller, sometimes slightly dished, head. Secondly, they carry their neck at a higher angle than the angle of the "ordinary" Quarter Horse. Thirdly, they are much larger and more muscular than the average Quarter Horse. Finally, their legs tend to be thinner and straighter than those of other Quarter types, and their hooves are smaller.
