Ceimard (sem-ard) is a rough variation on the pairing of the words "céim ard" which means "high step" in Irish Gaelic, chosen due to the horse's origin of Limerick (Top Creek Stables) - though they are also commonly known as Irish Trotters, Mards and Steppers - despite the heritage being borrowed from various odd places around the world. These horses are the slender sport type of Western horses. Their blood is comprised with that of the Akhal Teke, Arabian, Saddlebred and Marwari. With a naturally long, endless stride and the five gaits of the Saddlebred, Mards are dual suited to both Saddleseat as well as Western disciplines, though they excel as competition horses due to the composition of their unique look and nimble physique. Much like a thoroughbred, they make good race and endurance horses as well, their stamina and surefootedness were borrowed in full from the akhal teke and the arabian. They are rarely ever found in English disciplines otherwise.
What some would consider an odd but complimentary mixture, they have fine bone structure and a thin, subtly dished profile with a well refined head. Ears are curled to the point, one of the only things to be credited to the marwari that was not bred out of the Stepper earlier on in time, the look was decided to be kept despite the marwari being discarded as the type of blood the breed was looking for. Their back is sloped and neatly curved, beginning with a rather high set of withers and ending in a set of round, large hindquarters. One of the most unique features of the breed, however, has to be the naturally curled "fountain tail", an accidental trait that appeared after a slight genetic mutation was kept and passed along due to the original appearance. Ceimard enthusiasts often judge the curlyness of the tail as being essential toward the confirmation of a horse. Under working conditions, the tail can be swept into a tied bun.
The mane is commonly roached in shows from the forelock to about the length of 10 centimeters past the poll, where it is allowed to reach about middle width of the neck before being trimmed. Tails are allowed to grow freely without ever being cut, some may even reach past the hocks at the ends.
Despite being typically slender like the akhal teke, they retain a large amount of muscle, which makes them suitable to compete against bulky, buff horses like the Quarter horse and the Appaloosa and still hold their own. The signature metallic sheen from the coat of the akhal teke was inherited as well. It is unknown why, but Irish Trotters will always have pink skin.
As far as personality goes, it differs from horse to horse, but they are generally docile with a side effect of being slightly flighty. Perhaps not for beginning riders unless you end up with an unusually amiable animal. Good with livestock and small animals such as dogs and cats. Ceimards generally are pretty colorful characters and intelligent, making them a good addition towards the morale of any farm environment.

Are imports open?
Templado Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2014  Professional General Artist
How can i get one?
noebelle Featured By Owner May 10, 2014  Student Digital Artist
ugh, sorry for stalkering, but I was checking over the page to see what became of the breed i made o:

i have no clue what's going on right now or if either admin intends to keep it active :shrug:

but if you want my founding stallion or my founding mare, you can have them
TCrS Snapdragon by noebelle or TCrS Silver Belles by noebelle

not really interested in harpg anymore, but i was fond of them while i had them, so having them owned by someone still in the game would be better than just letting them rot
Templado Featured By Owner May 10, 2014  Professional General Artist
I`d buy theemm... *hissing* =)
noebelle Featured By Owner May 10, 2014  Student Digital Artist

If I have sold some Ceimards, how should I transfer the ownership?
