The Quarter Horse Way
Joining the Quarter Horses Track Club, as with any Track & Field Club is simply a matter of paying a fee and filling out some paperwork. The real question isn’t what does it take to join the Team but what does it take to be a Quarter Horse?
Athletes of the Quarter Horses Track Club are held to a higher standard than most teams, supported by the thought of how can't you expect great things if we don’t demand great things! A thought that carries to the track. At Quarter Horses Track Club “training hard” is an understatement. We train for one reason and one reason only, to dominate! Our athletes learn that winning and losing a race happens well before the track meet occurs, the gun sounds and before the first, second and final calls. Winning is determined in all the conditioning and training sessions leading up to the race, well out of the sight of fans. Often referred to as the “grunt work” of the sport.
The greatness of Track and Field is in its purity. In most, Refs and Coaches don’t determine the outcome of a competition. It’s all about what’s in you. Track and Field is as mental as it is physical. Thus, we train our athletes to be mentally strong with the hope that such “ mental toughness” carries over in their endeavors on and off the track. Consequently, we require that all our athletes possess determination, integrity, humbleness, confidence and last but not least a willingness to learn. These attributes are key to becoming a successful athlete as well as a successful and productive individual. If you feel like you can live up to what you have just read then I welcome you to join the Quarter Horses Track Club.
