About Orlov Trotter HorsesAbout Orlov Trotter Horses



Orlov Trotters are Russian horses known for greet speed and endurance. They were developed in the 1800's with the help of Count Alexei Orlov, who operated the Khrenovskoy Stud Farm situated somewhere near Bobrov, a small town in Russia. Count Orlov cross breed local mares with English, Danish, and Arabian stallions to development of the Russian Trotter.

Through the 1800's Russian nobles frequently rode Orlov Trotter and enjoyed their durability; however, by the the twentieth century they became unpopular soon were threatened by extinction. Luckily a small number proved successful enough at racing and some owners continued to breed them. Currently around a dozen of them still exist in Voronezh, Ukraine, and around the Sea of Azov in the Russian Federation.

Orlov Trotters are very tall (around 17 hands tall) and strong. They are alert and have an excellent sense of their surroundings. They have large eyes, an arched neck, strong legs, and prominent tendons. Generally they are grey but some are also found in black, chestnut, and bay.
