It will also be celebrating the 350th anniversary of the Canadian Year of the Horse.
This horse was brought to New France in 1665 when King Louis XIV of France shipped 2 stallions and 20 mares from his royal stables. Eight of the mares perished on the journey, but the remaining horses survived the journey. They arrived in New France on July 16th, 1665.
