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).

My boy:
These guys almost went extinct and are just starting to come back. They are pricey to buy because of it. Only a couple hundred registered.

Canadians are a very versatile, easy to handle breed. They are very willing, have nice strong feet, large bone mass, and are so trainable.
Mine are used for driving, western and english riding, and are used as pack horses in the mountains as well. They are really easy keepers, which makes them perfect for mountain work as they do not loose weight out there like the others do. We used to have paints. They work out in the mountains just as well, but they loose weight out there, so we had to pack grain for them. The grass out there is just not like the pastures at home. And the work is hard.
Check out my stallions page on my site. There is a little article at the bottom of the page that runs through his fist year under saddle at the shows. It is unreal what they can accomplish and how quickly they can do it well.

Hi I must join my fellow canadian owner.

They are a great breed. I got one. Because I used to do a bunch of diffrent disciplines everything from endurance riding to reaing and barrel racing to classical dressage.
I liked the andalusion and quarter horses. But I wanted something that could do a levade but could do a twenty mile endurance ride the next day.

After much research I found the Canadian. They are a great horse and worth a test ride.

Take a look at my stallion. You can check out his photos in my album.
He has done a twenty mile endurance ride, but can do classical dressage. He learns quickly and has never let me down. As I said they are worth a test ride
