Araboulonnais horses are a relatively new French breed
developed by crossing of Arabians to large, robust Boulonnais horses.
The origin of the Araboulonnais began late in the 20th
century. It was thought that the beauty and pep of Arabians would blend
wonderfully with the gentleness and soundness of the large Boulonnais. The
resulting cross was an animal that was more refined than the Boulonnais but
much larger and heavier than the Arabian. They were created for riding or
trekking and they prove to be energetic, athletic mounts with a tendency to be
resistant to disease.
They average 15.2 – 15.7 hands high. Generally they are
grey. They are gentle, Intelligent, and tough.
