About New Kirgiz HorsesAbout New Kirgiz Horses



New Kirgiz, or Novokirgizskaya, horses were developed in the state and collective farms of Kirgiz, Russia, by crossing local horses with the Don and the Thoroughbred horses. New Kirgiz horses are well adapted to highland conditions. They are used for stock work and meat and milk production. They are short-legged and massive and they have a strong constitution. In type and conformation they closely resemble Don horses.  

The average measurements of stallions (in cm) are: height at withers 156, body length 158, chest girth 188, the cannon bone girth 20.5. Mares' measurements are somewhat lower: 151,155, 180 and 19 respectively.  

New Kirgiz horses have a medium-sized clean-cut head with low neck, well-defined withers, straight and level back and heavily muscled croup. Their top-line is level. Legs are clean-cut with tendons well defined. Sickle-hocked legs often occur.  

There are three recognized intra-breed types: saddle, thick and massive, standard. Mares yield up to 20 kg of milk daily. They have performed well on hippodrome trails. Their speed records are: 1600 m in 1 min 48 sec, 2400 m in 2 min 44.2 sec.  

At present the breed numbers 56,650, including 10,700 purebreds.
