Haflinger

The Haflinger is a breed of horse developed in Austria and northern Italy during the late 1800s. There are several theories as to this breed's origin, but its current conformation and appearance are the result of infusions of Arabian and various European breeds blood into the original native Tyrolean ponies. Haflinger horses are relatively small, are always chestnut in color, and have distinctive gaits described as energetic but smooth. The breed is well-muscled, but with an elegant appearance. Haflingers have many uses, including light draft and harness work as well as various under-saddle disciplines such as endurance riding, dressage, equestrian vaulting and therapeutic riding programs.

Type: The horse's appearance should be elegant and harmonious, with a refined and expressive head with large eyes, a well shaped mid-section, and a well-shaped croup which must not be too steep or too short. The horse should be well muscled and show correct, clean limbs with well formed clearly defined joints. Breeding stallions should have unmistakable masculine features and brood mares should exhibit undeniable feminine lines and features.

Head: Should be noble and lean and should fit well with the rest of the horse. The eyes should be large and positioned forward. The nostrils should be large and wide. Should have a light poll and correctly positioned ears.

Neck: Should be of medium length and should become narrower towards the head. There should be sufficient freedom through the jowls.

Front-section: Well pronounced withers that reach far into the back, a large sloped shoulder and a deep broad chest.

Back: Medium length, well muscled, and when in motion should combine elasticity, balance and tension.

Mid-section: Well connected to both forehand and hindquarters, with sufficient girth and curved deep ribs.

Hindquarters: A long well muscled croup, slightly sloped and not too much split.

Tail: Not too deeply set.

Legs: Show clear, lean distinct joints, and equal stance on all four feet. Legs should be in a straight line when viewed front or back. From the side the front legs should be straight and hind legs should display an angle of 150 degrees through the hock and an angle of 45-50 degrees through the pastern and hoof to the ground. The knee should be broad and flat and the hocks wide and powerful. Pasterns should be long and well developed and the hooves should be round, distinct and hard.

Movement and basic gaits: Diligent, rhythmic and ground covering gaits. The walk should be relaxed, energetic, and proud and cadenced. The trot and canter should be elastic, energetic, athletic, and cadenced with natural self-carriage and off the forehand as well as balanced with a distinct moment of suspension. The hindquarters should work actively with lots of propulsion. This propulsion should transfer through the elastic back to the free moving shoulder and front legs. A little knee action is desired. Especially the canter should have a very distinct forward-upward motion.

Haflinger color:

  • They range in color from light to dark chocolate. Most are chestnut with a flaxen mane and tail.

Haflinger size:

  • The height of the breed has increased since the end of World War II, when they stood an average of 13.3 hh. The desired height today is between 13.2 - 15 hh

  • Weight of this breed ranges from 800-1300 lb (365 - 590 kg)

Haflinger temperament:

  • Sound, strong character, a good disposition, sturdy all purpose type, willingness to work, efficient, easy keepers

Haflinger uses:

The Haflinger was originally developed to work in the mountainous regions of its native land, where it was used as a mountain pack horse and for forestry and agricultural work. Today the breed is used in many activities that include draft and pack work, light harness and combined driving, and many under-saddle events, including western-style horse show classes, trail and endurance riding, dressage, show jumping, vaulting, and therapeutic riding programs. They are used extensively as dressage horses for children, but are also tall and sturdy enough to be suitable as riding horses for adults. There are several national shows for Haflingers worldwide, including those in Germany, Great Britain and the United States.
