About Hucul HorsesAbout Hucul Horses



Hucul (also known as Carpathian, Huculska, Hutsul, Hutul,rnHutan or Huzul) ponies are small horses from the Carpathian Mountains. Theyrnhave a heavy build and possess great endurance and hardiness. rnrn 

rnrnHucul horses bear some resemblance to the now-extinct Tarpanrnhorse. They are named after the small ethnic group of Hutsuls; however, theyrnhave been around much longer the Hutsul people. Hucul horses are probablyrndepicted on the monuments erected by Roman Emperors Domitian and Trajan, asrnDacian draft horses. They were mentioned for the first time in writtenrnresources around 400 years ago (as the "Mountain Tarpan"). Unlike thernPolish Konik, the Hucul has been only rarely cross-bred with domestic horses.rnrn 

rnrnIn the 19th century, Huculs were used by thernAustro-Hungarian Army.rnrn 

rnrnIn 1856, the first Hucul first stud farm was established atrnRadauti, Romania. Several bloodlines were established by the foundationrnstallions Goral, Hroby, Ousor, Pietrousu, and Prislop, and the horses wererncarefully bred to preserve the purity of these bloodlines. In 1922,rnthirty-three horses were sent to Czechoslovakia to establish a herd there whichrnwould become the Gurgul line. World War II caused a severe decline in thernnumber of Hucul horses in Czechoslovakia. After the end of the war, only 300rnHucul horses remained there. It was not until the early 1970s that breedersrnestablished an organization, Hucul Club, to prevent the extinction there causedrnby the declining number. In 1982 they established a stud book with fiftyrnpurebred animals with the goal of increasing the numbers in that region.rnrn 

rnrnThanks to the efforts of breeders, the world population ofrnthese horses now exceeds 1,000. Most of them live in Poland, Slovakia, Romania,rnthe Czech Republic, and Ukraine. Many ponies in Europe also have Hucul blood.rnIn recent years the popularity of this bred has spread as far as England.rnrn 

rnrnHucul ponies are usually calm with a good disposition, andrnare used for both hacking and pulling timber in otherwise inaccessible forestedrnareas. They are usually bay, black, chestnut, or the grullo variation of dun,rnwith a dorsal stripe and zebra stripes on the legs characteristic of the breed.rnTheir conformation traits include a short head with a relatively short neck,rncompact body, short legs, and sound feet.
