Vladimir Heavy Draft horses come from Vladimir, in the formerrnUSSR. They are a strong draft horse of medium size.

rnrnThey were developed mainly from imported British horses;rnconsisting of the Suffolk Punch, Clydesdale and Shire horses. Some Ardennes andrnPercheron horses were also used. In 1946, the Vladimir Heavy Draft was found tornbe breeding sufficiently true to be type to consider it a true breed. Thisrnquick-maturing, strong, heavy horse is popular for draft work. It is also usedrnfor pulling Vladimir trokia sleighs. Today, they are bred widely.rnrn
