About Florida Cracker HorsesAbout Florida Cracker Horses



Florida Cracker horses (also known as as Chicksaw Pony,rnSeminole Pony, March Tackle, Grass Cut, Prairie Pony, and the ever popularrnFlorida Cow Pony) originated in Florida, USA. They can found in Florida, Georgia,rnand Alabama.They are known for being smaller (around 14 hands), attractive,rnvery smart, and having a big personality.

rnrnSome experts believe they were brought over from Cuba, whichrnwould certainly account for their smaller size. They, like some other famousrnsouthern breeds, have an unusual gait that comes naturally to them (arnsingle-footed gait referred to as the ‘coon rack’). rnrn 

rnrnThey did very well over the years, but did suffer from arndecrease in popularity when the Quarter Horse came about. Some farmers fromrnthat era decided to change the way this downward spiral was headed by using therndocile creatures to help work on their ranches, which instantly increased theirrnbreeding population.rnrn 

rnrnThey have a concave profile, sloping shoulders, and bodyrnfull of muscles, pronounced withers, and a narrow chest.rnrn 

rnrnFlorida Cracker horses are used for many purposes. They arernan excellent choice for riding for children, as well as adults of all ages andrnsizes and they work well on farms. They are sweet but also frisky when theyrnwant to be. They are very bright and full of spirit.
