Breed Versatility

Versatility of the Breed

The breed is capable of much more that we at Keewatin Farm ask our horses to do. The breed is noted for many skills, proven by the fact that Canadiens have done well at the Annual Spruce Meadows ‘Battle of the Breeds’.

The breed is used for at least the following:

Dressage
Jumping
Endurance Riding
MountainPacking
Ranch Work
Trail Riding

Police Work
Eventing
Logging
Farm Work
Combined Driving
Carriage Work
Wagon/Sleigh Rides
 

Talk about versatility. Friends in Quebec (Ferme Franchere) have a stallion which is used for logging in the winter, (singly or in pair) and in the summer goes competition jumping. This little chestnut horse won first place in jumping at the 1999 Quebec Summer Games and is not even 15 hands high!
