I don't know much about the things you are asking if quarter horses are good at, but I know they really excel at the quarter mile, hence the name "quarter'' horse. Any rodeo type speed event they are really good in. Don't know much about competitive trail riding or Cross Country, but they just aren't built for jumping compared to thoroughbreds, which, as far as I know, are them most common horse for jumping.
