Our breeders group is dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the Canadian Horse.
The Canadian Horse or Le Cheval Canadien originated from horses sent to Quebec Canada by King Louis XIV in the late 1600′s. These horses, the best from the King’s stable, were of French Norman, Breton, Arab, Andalusian and Spanish Barb descent.
Under conditions of hard use, sparse feed, and extreme weather conditions, the Canadian eventually developed into the easy keeping and hardy animals that they are today.
It is said that this Canada horse is capable of generating “more power per hundred pounds of body weight than horses of any other breed.” Traits such as these earned the Canadian their nickname “The Little Iron Horse”.
