About Estonian Draft HorsesAbout Estonian Draft Horses



Estonian Draft or Eston-Arden (Estonian: Eestirnraskeveohobune) were developed from a cross of Swedish Ardennes stallions torncreate a draft horse that was an easy keeper that was powerful yet fast.

rnrnA stud book was established in 1921, and the breed wasrnofficially recognized by the Estonian government in 1953. At the same time thernEstonian Draft was developed, the Lithuanian Heavy Draft and the Soviet HeavyrnDraft also came into being in order to serve a demand for heavy draft horses inrnthe Soviet Union. As of 1994, there were approximately 400 Estonian Drafts inrnexistence, including about 15 breeding stallions and 120 breeding mares. Atrnthat time, population numbers were reported to be decreasing. Another typerndeveloped in the 1990s for use as a harness horse. Although there werernoriginally eight main blood lines, by 2004 the breed had been reduced to fourrnstallion lines, and only 14 purebred foals were born.rnrn 
rnrnEstonian Drafts are generally bay or chestnut in color.rnThrough selective breeding, they have become well adapted to the soil inrnnorthern Estonia.

rnrnPopulation numbers have decreased since the early 1990s andrntoday inbreeding is of significant concern and they are considered to bernendangered by the Estonian government. Although originally used for heavy draftrnwork, they are now used mainly for small-scale gardening.
