About Furioso-North Star HorsesAbout Furioso-North Star Horses



Furioso, or Furioso-North Star, horses were developed at thernMezohegys farm, Hungary, in 1784. One of the foundations sires wasrn"Furioso" who was an English Thoroughbred stallion. Furioso was bornrnin 1836 and set for stud in 1841. Another foundation sire was "NorthrnStar" who was born in 1844. He was set for stud in 1850, at age six. Hisrnbloodlines could be traced to Norfolk roadsters and he was descended from arn1793 Derby winner, "Waxy," grandson of "Eclipse." The maresrnwere mostly Nonius. The descendants of North Star were excellent harness racernhorses. The two lines merged around 1885 and the Furioso progeny dominated. Thernoffspring of Furioso had more thoroughbred blood and made better riding horses.rnrn rnrn 

rnrnFurioso colors are usually black, bay or brown. However, anyrnsolid color is acceptable. They are 16 hh with fairly good conformation. Theirrnhead is not coarse but rather fine like a thoroughbred, their neck is elegant,rntheir shoulders slope well, their wither tends to be high. They tend to have arnshort coupling with strong back, a fairly deep girth and chest, strong soundrnlimbs, and good hard hooves. Their temperament is generally calm and wanting tornplease. They tend to have an animated movement that makes them excellent forrnriding or driving. They are good in competitions. The Csikos horse herders ofrnHungary, World famous for there displays of trick riding, often use the Furiosornbreed.rnrn 

rnrnThey can be found in Hungary, Romania, and Slovakia. Unfortunately,rnthey are in peril. Efforts are being made to save the breed. The Furioso-NorthrnStar Horse Breeders Association was formed. Two farms, the Hod-Mezogazda Rt.rnAranyagi farm and the Taltos Panzio farm in Bugac, are home to many freernroaming Furioso horses.
