Wielkopolski

Share





The Wielkopolski Horse was developed in the 1960’s by crossing two now extinct Polish breeds, the Pozan and the Mazury, so it is also referred to as the Mazursko-Poznanski

The Wielkopolski horse has a fine, small head with a straight profile and lively eyes. This is set into a strong, long neck. The breed has sloping shoulders and a deep and wide chest

It is muscular, compact, and deep in the body, with powerful hindquarters. Their legs are well muscled with long cannons and good, clearly defined joints and tendons. Generally they are used as Sport Horses doing well in show jumping and dressage

They can be any solid colour, and usually stand between 15.2 and 16.2 hands high
