This Fourth Of July celebrate the spirit of America with the amazing horse breeds of America. Breyer and Golden Oak Stables bring you dozens of horse breeds from all over the world, but on this most patriotic of days let’s take a moment to celebrate the breeds that hail from the United States.
The United States is a young country by many standards. Founded less than 300 years ago, it has undergone many changes since it was first founded. One fascinating thing to remember is the big part that the horse played in not only the founding of the country, but the expansion and growth. Without the horse, our country wouldn’t be anything like we know it today!
The Mustang is one of the most recognizable breeds of America. These feral horses roam the Western United States and are close relatives to the first horses that helped to explore our country! Two other American breed that hail from the wild west are the Paint and Appaloosa horse. These breeds have been traced back to Native American horses that were here for thousands of years and are recognizable by their flashy coats that can catch an eye from far away. From the North East United States the Morgan was bred to fill the needs of families and still is popular today. These horses are small, compact and overall great riding horses.
That’s just the beginning of the myriad of horses that hail from the United States. Each horse breed is different both in America and all over the world. With as many different breeds, it can get a little confusing, but with a stable full of them from Breyer they’re easy to remember and so much fun to learn about!
