Other groupings that were well represented were Appaloosas (700) and Appy Crosses (37), Mustangs including Keigers and Spanish, etc. (293) and cross (31).
Certain breeds were not heavily represented despite the huge numbers in the US. Quarter horses (189), Paints (160), Thoroughbreds (315) and crosses (16).
There were 162 mules, 5 Andalusians (no Lusitanos), 1 American Warmblood, 10 Trakenhners, 3 Belgians.
Surprisingly there were many more gaited horses, more than would be expected based on their proportion within overall breed numbers in the US. Peruvian Paso (48), Kentucky Mountain Horses (8), Missouri Fox Trotters (93), Rocky Mountain (24), Saddlebred (72), Tennessee Walkers (236).
In 2005, there were....drum roll please...16 Icelandics on the AERC roll. Considering there were probably around 3200 registered Icelandics in the US at the time, this is a pretty good representation of the breed.
