About Waler Horses
Waler horses were given their name by the area in which they
came from, New South Wales in Australia. They are a result of being taken over
by the hands of eager settlers aiming to get a new life for themselves and
become more prosperous. Thoroughbreds, Clydesdales, Shires, Arabs, and English
Native Breeds were all introduced into this breed over time. The Indonesian
style horse, the Timor Pony became the most positive source for the Waler horse
to evolve. It was this cross breeding that helped aid in keeping the horse
breed strong and making it more agile. They began to become the ideal horse breed
for military use; they have an excellent stride, fast pace, and an immense
amount of energy. Even though they were thought of as great animals, they
almost became extinct as time went on due to mechanization.
horses are around sixteen hands tall. They have a broad forehead with a
straight head. Well sloped shoulders and strong quarters, they additionally have
a deep chest and powerful legs.
