Canadian horse [edit]

History of the Canadian horse
The Canadian horse descends from stock sent to Canada from France by Louis XIV in the late 17th Century. The king had hopes for developing a breeding program for the horses in the French colony. The exact origins of the horses that were sent over is unknown, although many believe the Canadian horse descends from Breton, Norman, Andalusian and Barb horses. The horses thrived despite low comfort and hard work, earning the Canadian horse the nickname of ‘the little iron horse’. The Canadian horse breed has been in danger of disappearing in the past, but now there are more than 6,000 of the Canadian horse breed registered.

Canadian horse height
The Canadian horse ranges in average from 14 to 16 hands
 
Canadian horse appearance
The Canadian horse has large eyes, delicate ears and a well-structured head. In terms of build, the Canadian horse is very muscular and compact and has naturally animated gaits. The mane and tail of the Canadian horse are both heavy and wavy. Most Canadian horses are black, while bay, chestnut and brown Canadian horses are less common. Some are also, more rarely, ash white.
 
Canadian horse temperament
The Canadian horse is considered to be sound, hardy and built for endurance. They are a willing breed and can live on fairly little food. Their generally good temperament means the Canadian horse often makes a good all rounder horse for families. Nowadays, the Canadian horse is often bred for driving. Some are used as work horses and for farming horses still.
