Canadian Horse History

I was looking at this video again and actually typed up what they were saying in the demo and put it on my web page, the one of my pest. Thought it was really interesting info. Thought some of you might find it interesting.
The video actually starts at 1:10 into the video. Excellent info, really interesting!

Willow Breeze

This is my Canadian mare, Willow. She just turned nine years old and I'm looking for a stud to cover her. She is wearing a cross-under, bitless bridle of my own design. It has a wider, longer than normal poll strap. It is also higher on the nose and cross-unders tend to slip better then most. It is something that we both can agree on. I'm still making improvements on the design and this isn't perfected yet. But let me tell you the story.
I first tried her with my first try at macraming a bitless, in August 08. The first few minutes she fought me and didn't like the pressure around her head. After she seemed to work well. But it was the next day, when the bitless became most noticeable. I put a young boy (14) on her back for training with the snaffle with shanksthat she was used to and she refused to work. She refused to turn or backup. I got on her and it was the same thing. So I called the vet thinking that I had a sick horse. An hour later the vet came and checked her out but couldn't find a problem. We worked for hours on her, trying everything, then the vet asked about her previous work outs and the bitless bridle came back into the scene. Put it on her and she worked like a dream. That was in August and I made her one of her own. This is it. She hasn't had a bit in her mouth since. I don't approve of her reaction, but there it is.
After owning a Canadian for a year, I would have a dozen more. All that is said of them, is build into this mare. She has a lot of badness to her but she lived an exceptionally horrible life. Bad enough to stretch all four tendons on her legs and put her on the meat man's truck. I got her off the truck, because she was a Canadian, she was only 8 at the time and she was pretty, so I took home. She is smart enough to make a fool out of me more then once. She has defeated me on fencing, on workouts and now on the bridle and honestly I'd have a dozen just like her, because she is hardy, tough, not necessary to trim her hooves often. She has a beautiful crested neck and holds her head to her chest when being ridden.

This website is for a Canadian horse. She had one very nice stallion. There is also a lot of information about the history of the Canadian on there.
