The year 2015 marks 350 years since King Louis XIV of France first sent horses from his own stables to Quebec. To celebrate this anniversary of the founding of the Canadian Horse breed, Upper Canada Village dedicated the first day of its annual Horse Lovers Weekend to the Canadian Horse. Many of Upper Canada Village’s own Canadian horses were working as usual in the village that day, and a number of Canadians from outside the Village were invited to join in the festivities, to showcase the versatility of the breed.
