Canadian Horse

Just wondering if anyone has experience with this horse. I was talking to someone about the Rocky Mt Horse and they suggest that this horse might be another breed I may be interested in.

I don't think it's gaited I'm not sure if thats good, bad or neutral for me.

Here are some links on the breed.

Never heard of one or ridden one, but I bet they're cool. :)

Ride more, worry less.

I've ridden two mares. They are lovely. The two I dealt with could be a bit pushy but just because their mommy's let them walk all over them.
To ride they were wonderful, very powerful horses but incredibly intelligent.
This is only based on the two I can in contact with, but they were great.

I OWN ONE!! They are the most incredible horses you could buy. Here is my boy. Bought earlier this year, he just turned one.His registration papers just came in (he was DNA tested and chipped) and I'm going to get him branded as well.

Pardon the 3rd thread, I keep thinking of more things to add and it won't let me edit. Can you tell I love them ;)
Here is one of the main studs currently being used where I bought my boy from.
Generally speaking they are great horses to ride, easy going, easy keepers, I love their build and color and they are very social horses. Having said that, the main thing most Canadian Horse owners will tell you is that they are strong horses. They can get strong under saddle.Otherwise they are probably one of the easiest breeds you could ever deal with.
Here is the stud (which he doesnt even know he is one).
