Strange Fruit

We have had a request to identify the tree below (see pics). The query comes from Teresa, who says:

“Hi,
I would just like to try and find out what kind of tree this is….a friend wants to know, as she has horses on her property and wants to make sure that it is not dangerous to them?
I hope you will able to figure out from these pics..
Thank you!
Teresa ”

    Quince, maybe? (Be helpful if we could see pics of the size of tree, characteristic leaf pattern, top and bottom of fruit itself)
