About Florida Cracker HorsesAbout Florida Cracker Horses



Florida Cracker horses (also known as as Chicksaw Pony, Seminole Pony, March Tackle, Grass Cut, Prairie Pony, and the ever popular Florida Cow Pony) originated in Florida, USA. They can found in Florida, Georgia, and Alabama.They are known for being smaller (around 14 hands), attractive, very smart, and having a big personality.

Some experts believe they were brought over from Cuba, which would certainly account for their smaller size. They, like some other famous southern breeds, have an unusual gait that comes naturally to them (a single-footed gait referred to as the ‘coon rack’).  

They did very well over the years, but did suffer from a decrease in popularity when the Quarter Horse came about. Some farmers from that era decided to change the way this downward spiral was headed by using the docile creatures to help work on their ranches, which instantly increased their breeding population.  

They have a concave profile, sloping shoulders, and body full of muscles, pronounced withers, and a narrow chest.  

Florida Cracker horses are used for many purposes. They are an excellent choice for riding for children, as well as adults of all ages and sizes and they work well on farms. They are sweet but also frisky when they want to be. They are very bright and full of spirit.
