Use and characteristics of the Haflinger
The Haflinger is one of the horse breeds that breeds very true to type. This makes all Haflingers very similar in appearance, having the rich sorrel colouring with flaxen mane and tail that is part of the appeal for those who buy a Haflinger. A closer look reveals gradations in coat colour from almost chocolate-coloured to pale gold. There is some variation in conformation too, from a lighter riding type to a sturdier, more draught-like type, with different qualities prized by the people who sell a Haflinger. The height standard has varied over the years and today Haflingers are between 13.2 hands (54 inches/137 cm) and 15 hands (60 inches/152 cm) high. Haflingers combine the best of both horse and pony characteristics, being easy to keep and compact, yet capable of taking on a big workload. Their long, broad backs have been developed for pack work and as harness ponies, they cover the ground with speed and energy. Haflingers were also used by the military as ideal equines for campaigns in remote, mountainous terrain.
