Breeds of Livestock - East Bulgarian Horses

East Bulgarian

Also Known As: Istochno-b"lgarska

The East Bulgarian originates from Bulgaria, like its name suggests. The East Bulgarian is a light riding and draft horse, usually chestnut, bay or black. They have originated since 1900 from Kabuik stallions, Thoroughbreds and English halfbred crossed with Anglo-Arab, Arab and Bulgarian Native horses. The breed was recognized in 1951. They are bred as sport horses for equestrian events such as dressage and jumping, and racing.
