A Note about Sugarbush Draft Horses

I see it over and over again, and no matter how many times it's said, it's still wrong. "Sugarbush Drafts are just an Appaloosa Draft Cross". Uh.... no. The Sugarbush Draft Horse was a breed created many years ago in Ohio. While the initial cross was made using Percherons to Appaloosas, in the many generations following, the breed has been solidified into a consistent type. Saying these horses are "just" a draft cross makes as much sense as saying that AQHA horses are "just" a Thoroughbred cross, American Cream Drafts are "just" a dilute Belgian, or that Morgans are "just" a grade.

Tis' The Season....

Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday Season
From all of us here at Iron Ridge Sport Horses
May your day be filled with family, friends, and food
And your day be as joyous as you wish it!



And for my Sunday pony friends, looks like the rain has canceled our riding plans yet again.  So stay home, stay warm, and finish off those Christmas Dinner leftovers!
