Haflingers

Posted by

Haflingers are hardy little horses that come from the Austrian and Italian Alps of Europe where they were used as work horses for plowing fields, pulling logs, and carrying farmers through the rugged mountain trails. They get their name from the Tyroleon mountain village of Halfing.

They came to the USA in the 1960s and are now used in a variety of disciplines.

Although they are small (usually between 13.2 and 15 hands) they are quite strong and can easily carry a larger rider. They are quiet and steady, a tribute to their working ancestors, and vary from light to dark chestnut in color.
