Native British Breeds

Hi everyone I live in the uk and new to the forum I was just wondering, which, if any of the british native breeds are popular in the usa?

The Thoroughbred, Clydesdale, Shetland pony and Welsh pony. Can't think of many others that are really popular. Irish Draught to some extent, but not really that popular.

Didn't think TB's were Natives..

I'd say Shetland types or some sort of Welsh.
I say some sort since a skinny, badly built, TB-looking section C can be 14.2hh and still registered as Welsh.

Clydes and Clyde X's seem to be popular too.
Well, from what I've seen on my latest trips to the states.

Yep...clyde/clyde X's are really popular around here. TB's are pretty popular as well. The shetland and welsh ponies are really popular as well.

Hackneys are a British breed.

The ponies I see over here are nothing like the sturdy natives you see in the uk. Most of them are bred to be fine boned and dainty now. Are halflingers british breeds? I see them advertised more and more.
