The Blazer horse is a relatively new horse breed that was developed in the northwestern United States. The history of the breed begins back to the 1950s when the Neil Hinck, which had a great knowledge of many horse breed, crossed an American Quarter horse and a Morgan horse with the blood of American Saddlebred and Thoroughbred.
In 1959, this mixture resulted in the foal of a new horse breed, a strong-willed Blazer. This chestnut stallion was named Little Blazer. The American Blazer Horse Association ABHA was established and incorporated in 2006 in order to preserve and promote the breed.
