Florida Cracker Description
  The Florida Crack is known by a variety of other names, including Cracker, Chicksaw Pony, Seminole Pony, March Tackie, Prairie Pony, Florida Horse and Florida Cow Pony. They are descended from Spanish stock brought into Florida in the 16th century by Spanish Conquistadors. The Florida Cracker is small and agile and adept at driving cattle. They are small but sturdy, with easy, ground-covering gaits that are rarely found in other breeds. Their gait include flatfoot walk, running walk, trot, and ambling. They are very energetic and enjoy working. Their intelligent head is refined, with a straight or slightly concave profile. The dark eyes are keen and wide set with a white scelara. The neck is narrow and well-defined and the back is short and narrow. They are predominately solid colors or grays, although all colors common to horses are possible.
