About Pleven HorsesAbout Pleven Horses



Pleven horses are competition horses with a natural jump andrnfree-flowing gaits.

rnrnPleven horses were developed in 1898 in the Klementina studrn(now called the Georgi Dimitrov Agricultural Center) in Bulgaria. Plevens arernmostly Anglo-Arab, but Gidran stallions were later added to the breed. Theyrnwere officially recognized in 1951, and English Thoroughbred blood was furtherrnadded to add refinement and size to Plevens.rnrn 

rnrnThe breed is still selectively bred throughout Bulgaria, andrnan effort is being made to increase their size, which would make it morernattractive as an international sport horse.rnrn 

rnrnThe Pleven's head has a straight profile, a long, muscularrnneck, and a nice topline. They are excellent movers, whose free-flowing gaitsrnmake them excel in dressage. They have fairly long backs and high withers, withrnquarters that are muscular, croups which are slightly sloping, and a tail thatrnis carried well. Their legs are well-conformed and muscular, have good bonernjoints, well-defined tendons, and hard feet. Their temperament is calm andrnwilling. The Pleven is usually sound, tough, and economical to feed.

rnrn rnrnPlevens are always chestnut in color, and stand at 15.2 torn16 hands high.
