I <3 Haffies! They can be sweet, yet stubborn, but are generally good natured. At least that is the dozen or so that I've been around. Friends of ours have many and they love them because they are so easy to break... they have said most of their horses act like they've been saddled a million times when they first saddle up and hop on. I am helping friends with a green-broke Haflinger of theirs, and she is a doll. Acts like she was born on the trail and has only ever bucked once (out of excitement, not malicious at all) the first time she was asked to canter under saddle! I want to fill my barn with them... My only complaint is that most are under 15h, and I feel like an Oger on them because I'm on the tall side!
