About Canadian Sport Horse HorsesAbout Canadian Sport Horse Horses



The farm horse of the Canadian countryside is the base stockrnfor the Canadian Sport Horse. After the First World War, Thoroughbred stallionsrnfrom England were made available to cross with the countryside stock, producingrna more refined horse. In 1926, the Canadian Hunter, Saddle and Light HorsernImprovement Society was organized. In 1933, a second organization, The CanadianrnHunter Society was incorporated and a Stud Book was maintained. The twornsocieties merged in 1970 and renamed the society to include the termrn"Sport Horse," a name which appropriately distinguishes this highlyrnathletic breed.rnrn 

rnrnDuring the First World War, and as the direct result ofrnCanada's reputation for breeding quality horses, a large percentage of Canada'srnhorse population was shipped overseas for military use. These horses never madernit back to their native land, resulting in a thin breeding stock for futurernCanadian horses. It wasn't until the Canadian government brought Thoroughbredsrnover from England that a foundation bloodline was established to create arnhealthy horse population again.rnrn rnrn 

rnrnStanding up to 16 hands high, the Canadian Sport Horse showsrnsimilar conformation to the hunters produced by the English and Irish. Over thernyears they have been highly refined for dressage competition, although some arernstill used for hunting.
