No Haflingers are I think a German breed or somewhere in that area of Europe.

Eagles may soar but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

Forgot to say Britain and Ireland as the Irish Draught and Connemara are not 'British' breeds as such and to add to the list Kerry Bog Pony

Haflingers are from Austria I believe. I don't know if I would consider Hackneys as popular her in the US. I have never seen one or heard of anyone with one except on here and they may have been in the UK.

They're a bit like the Comtois. Temperament wise anyway.
There only fault is they are known for being a farriers worst nightmare, their hooves crack and split so easily.
And, like any heavy horse, they get curbs easily.
But more or less like a Comtois.

Thanks Aoi Miku. But sorry for showing my ignorance on two fronts, what is a Comtois and what are curbs?

I was wondering what people are using SP x's for. As a riding horse are they used in any disciplins, can they jump? The reason I ask is that my mare is SP x, her dam was clydie TB x, her sire pure SP. Phoenix has great feet, nice and hard so I think I am lucky there! I have never seen another SP horse here in NZ so haven't a clue what to expect from my mare.

I love the mountain and moorland breeds! Connemaras are VERY popular in Canada. Welsh B's are definitely the most popular children's pony. Welsh A's and D's are less common and C's are rare. Crossbreeding the Welsh breeds is very common however. I have ridden both Dales and New Forest's but they aren't very well known either. Highlands, Dartmoors, Exmoors and Fells are all extremely rare.

^^^ Fells are the best... I'm a little biased though ;)
