Hungarian Half-bred



During the 1960's the Hungarian people began producing leisure and sports horses. They imported Hanoverians and Holsteins to cross them with the Furioso and the Gidran. They wanted to developed an animals suited for modern requirements. The Gidran, which is considered the hungarian Anglo-Arab, can be traced back to an Arabian stallion known as Gidran Senior. He was imported to Hungary in 1860. Gidran Senior's son became the foundation sire for the breed. At first many mares were used but later Thoroughbred blood was introduced and then more Arab blood. This breeding process resulted in horse with a good quality, ground-covering gallop.

Conformation Usually well proportioned with good, sloping shoulders and strong hindquarters.
