About Augeron HorsesAbout Augeron Horses



Augeron Horses were developed in Pays d'Auge ( an area inrnNormandy France). They are also known Caen or Virois horses and they wererndeveloped from the Percheron breed sometime around the 19th century.

rnrnIn 1904, Augeron horses were sold in Argences and Bayeux ofrnLower Normandy. People bought them for their homogeneity, beauty and highrnvalue.

rnrnThe Societe hippique du trait augeron, or Augeron HorsernSociety, was formed in 1913 by breeders in Auge to record these horses in arnbreed registry. The society wanted to preserve the breed and make it distinctrnfrom its ancestors, the Percheron.

rnrnThey are light gray; tall, strong, well-built; and energetic.rnThey are 158–170 cm (15.2–16.3 hands) tall.
