The Canadian horse attracted ardent admirers during the breed’s heyday in the late 1700s and early 1800s. The animals were strong, reliable, even-tempered, hardy, and adaptable. Somebody a long time ago dubbed the Canadians “the little iron horses.” That nickname still applies.

Ed Merkle drives a Canadian Horse team in Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area. Canadians plowed, hauled, carried riders, and rode to battle.
