Cheery Creek Fonzie Merit (retired)
The Canadian Horse breed was developed from stock sent to Canada by Louis XIV of France in the 1600's. Living and thriving in harsh conditions created a breed known as the "little iron horse" due to their hardiness, strength, and versatility. Champion stallion Cherry Creek Fonzie Merit is a fine example of how excellent conformation, intelligence, and easy temperament make the breed a fantastic "everyman's horse." A gentleman in every respect, Merit competes with owner Yvonne Hillsden in dressage and goes out on trails, in addition to being a breeding stallion. He is a wonderful ambassador for his breed!
