The Horse of The First People

The Ojibwe Horse was protected and revered by the 

First Peoples of Canada and the Anishinaabeg of 

Northern Ontario were the last protectors of these

Sacred Horses.   

The oral history of the breed goes back many generations

of the Anishinaabe people and Elders have taught that they

have always been with The People.  Many have asserted that

these horses are simply another feral equine that has been the result

of colonization.  Science and research are indicating otherwise.  Petroglyphs, fossil remains and science now supportive of oral traditions that tell of horses spanning the boreal belt of traditional lands long before European settlement. It is now understood that these intrepid little horses are, in fact, indigenous to Canada.
