About Russian Heavy Draft HorsesAbout Russian Heavy Draft Horses



Russian Heavy Draft horses originated in Russia and the Ukraine.rnThey are considered to be a younger style of horses, one that began in thernmiddle of the eighteen hundreds. The state studs were noted as Khrenov andrnDerkul and were mated with local mares, as well as the Ardennes breeds. ThernRussian Heavy Draft was once even used in the Paris Exhibition in 1900. In veryrnlittle time at all, the breed was introduced to newer blood lines, such as thernBrabant, Percheron, and the famous Orlov Trotter. The breed went on to bernvirtually extinct once the first World War was over, and then again followingrnthe Russian Civil War. Used for agricultural and lighter draft work, theyrncontinued to expand the breed. The style went on to be used to create arnfermented drink that was called ‘kumys’. Experts say it was a great drink tonicrnand used by many people during the nineteenth century.

Russian Heavy Draft horses are used for light draft work,rnharness work, and agriculture needs as well. They can be found in the RussianrnFederation in areas such as Kiev, Khrenov, Derkul, and other parts around thernBlack Sea. They can be seen still to this day pulling farm carts and otherrngoods.rnrn rnrn
