Amur Horse


The Amur is a light horse breed from Siberia of the early 19th century that is sadly now extinct.


Their bloodlines were a combination of Transbaikal (Buryat) & Tomsk heritage, they were bred primarily for riding. The Amur was a hardy & strong breed with a finer conformation than generally found in colder northern regions.

Their Demise

The breed became extinct due to crossing with many of the other Russian breeds including Orlov Trotters, Don & Budyonny.
