About Nivernais HorsesAbout Nivernais Horses



Nivernais are endangered black heavy draught horses from the Nievre region of central France. They stand about 165 to 175 centimetres at the withers, occasionally up to 180 cm, and weigh 800 to1000 kg. They were created in 1872 by the Comte de Bouille by crossing black Percheron stallions with local Cheval du Morvan mares. A stud book was opened in 1880, and from that time the breed largely supplanted the Cheval du Morvan. Their population declined from the 1950s following the mechanisation of agriculture, and in 1966 the stud-book was merged with that of the Percheron. Since the 1980s various efforts have been made to preserve the breed. Without official recognition in France, it is listed in DAD-IS by the FAO.
