Canadian Cutting Horse

Bred from the American Quarter Horse, it is Canadas equivalent to the same. It was developed to work the cattle and as such is extremely agile and quick making it an ideal competition horse.

The conformation is good and very similar to that of the American Quarter Horse. An attractive, compact horse of kind disposition, being both athletic and fearless. The average height is 15.2h.h. but it ranges between 14.3 and 16h.h. It may be any solid colour. The head is short and fairly wide with a straight forehead and nose, tapering small muzzle, large, wide set bright eyes and medium length alert ears; a fairly long flexible neck; sloping shoulders and well-defined withers; a short strong back and compact body with a broad chest and deep girth; well-sprung ribs and powerful loins; powerful, well-muscled hindquarters with a gently sloped croup; good strong limbs with short cannons and broad, low set hocks; large, well-defined, muscular thighs and gaskins; medium sized feet open at the heal. Today it is still used for working cattle and for many other equestrian pursuits: - Western show riding, rodeo, trail riding, showing, jumping and dressage.
