Canadian Horse

I have been riding quarter horses forever and...well...I want to try something new. I have been looking into different breeds and really like the Canadian.


Does anyone know of a good breeder? I am looking for a gelding. At least four years old.

And while your at it if you know anything worth mentioning about the breed that would be helpful too.

I'm trying to find someone who has one so I could go for a "test" ride because I am looking into other breeds and I'm sure it's going to be much different from TBs or quarter horses...

I do know of an excellent one. The breeder who bred my guy, I'm sure you've seen pics of him all over this site.

Where are you located?

If you look at my website in my signature, you will read the main info about the breed as well as pics of my Canadian Horse. We have a couple Canadian Horse owners on this site as well. Feel free to pm me :)

I'm glad we could have that effect on you, I think they are the best breed of horse out there. Are you willing to travel? We have a good dozen breeders up here in Alberta. Here is a good link to find all of them. Good luck :)

Let me know if I can help you in any way :)

Canadian Horse Breeders Group - Rocky Mountain District

Under breeders group you will find all the breeders.

Thank you! I am very willing to travel for the right horse. So far I can't find anything I don't like about them but like I said I have never ridden one before

To ride, the feel of one is not really any different than any other breed it's their temper that makes the difference :)

O__O Wow. That really is impressive...
They seem pretty versatile which I really like. I also like how they seem pretty level headed.
Maybe it's because I am so used to quarter horses but is there any thing I should look out for similar to HYPP or other genetic issues with this breed? I couldn't seem to find anything but I know when I was looking into clydes I found that they need a specific diet. Anything like that?
