About Novokirghiz HorsesAbout Novokirghiz Horses



Novokirghiz, or Novokirgizskaya, horses were developed inrnthe 1930s in Kirghizia (Kirghistan). They were developed by breeding OldrnKirghiz horses with Thoroughbred, Russian Don, and Anglo-Don horses. They arernused for harness, riding, and agricultural work, as well as pack horses in thernmountains. They are able to cope with almost any type of terrain. The mares arernusually used for milk, which locals ferment and turn into kumis, a major staplernof their diet. The mares can give up to 20 kg of milk daily. Speed records ofrnthis breed are: 1600 m in 1 min 48 sec, and 2400 m in 2 min 44.2 sec.

rnrnIn 1918, forty-eight Thoroughbreds were imported to thernIssyk-Kul stud in Kirghizia (Kirghistan) and were bred with Old Kirghiz mares. Theyrnbecame fixed during the 1930s and 1940s. Since then, they have largely replacedrnthe Old Kirghiz breed, which had descened mainly from Mongolian stock in thernhigh mountains of Kirghizia and Kazakhstan. Because of breeding with thernEnglish Thoroughbred, the Novokirghiz has become faster and more refined thanrnthe Old Kirghiz. Other breeds that were infused into the Old Kirghiz to developrnthe Novokirghiz are: English Thoroughbred, (Russian) Don, and half-bredrnAnglo/Don blood.

rnrnNovokirghiz horses are faster and more refined than OldrnKirghiz horses as a result of breeding with Thoroughbreds. Novokirghiz horsesrnhave small, neat heads; muscular necks; sloping shoulder; pronounced withers;rnlong backs; sloping hindquarters; and the legs are usually straight, hard, short,rnstrong, and muscular, without any feathering. Sickle hocks may frequently bernseen. They closley resemble Don horses. They have been known to be able to copernwith almost any kind of terrain. They have good stamina, endurance, and anrnenergetic temperament.rnrn 

rnrnThey are usually bay, brown (a type of bay), gray, orrnchestnut, though they can be almost any solid color. They are from 14.2 to 15.2rnhands high.
