Did you know that the Canadian is a distinct breed of horse and Canada's national horse??
The Canadian horse became the national horse of Canada in 2002, and because of dwindling numbers is now listed by Heritage Livestock Canada as "critical," with numbers of new annual registrations as low as 130 foals. With 1000 mares of breeding age and approx 5000 Canadian horses worldwide this versatile breed is in danger and they need our help!
Canadian horses can do anything — you can ride them, or they can haul a cart or sleigh. They can work in the woods hauling logs, do dressage or a course of jumps. They've even been known to pull hearses and work cattle!
