    I'm excited to watch Quinn grow and develop! I think he's going to be a really lovely horse. He definitely inherited a lot of his dad's traits, with the lighter build, long neck and bigger movement. We're hoping he finishes at least 16 hands, he might even make 16.1! He is a sweetie but he's also a little punk, hehe.

    Chloe, our mare, has been mistaken for a Friesian before. They do share some lineage waaaay back in the breed, apparently, if I remember correctly.

    Your horses are phenomenal! What gorgeous pictures of really stunning animals :o

    I learned about that breed when I was horse shopping and found one for sale. Didn't work out with him but I was really impressed by everything I learned about Canadian horses! I'd have been very interested in one if they were more common around here.

    My coach has two Canadians. The faded/brown looking one is a 5 year old mare in her first year of work with me aboard at a show we attended today. Her name is Five Winds Prince Saffron. The black boy is a 10 year old gelding, Five Winds Prince Magic. They are awesome horses, smart, willing, happy to work.

    Deerly, they do seem to still be quite rare in the States. The breed nearly died out at the turn of the last century, but the Canadian government got themselves organized and brought it back. Now there are around 13,000 registered horses, but my guess is most of them are in Canada.

    Kenda, the two you posted are beautiful! I love the mare's tail. I looked up their pedigrees...the Henryville line is supposed to be very steady, calm and kind. Our mare has a lot of the Fox line in her, but she didn't seem to get too much of the supposed mischievousness of his offspring. Although, both of our mare's foals are very gregarious and opinionated!

    I know this thread is a little older, but what are you all riding your Canadians in? Which brand of saddles? I'm having the hardest time fitting my 4 y/o gelding, and the saddle fitter at my aunts told me to come on here, and ask what you all ride in(tree size etc...)

    Which brands have you had the best of luck with?

    Both of ours go in a wintec isabell dressage saddle with the interchangeable gullet. I think they're both set to large.

    Nice looking horses, and an interesting breed. I've often wondered why they haven't caught on down here...
