Welcome to the new and improved breeds section, have a look around and meet a breed or two.

Banat Horse

Country of Origin: Romania



The Banat was a moderately large-framed quality horse which was used for draught & tractive power. This breed is now extinct.


This breed was a large light horse from the Timus Plateau of Romania. They were developed by crossing the Nonius, Noric, Ardennes, Oldenburg & Lipitsa. They became an important animal to the local people & were used primarily for agricultural work.

Unfortunately, with the emergence of modernization techniques for farming, the Banat, among other draft type animals fell into extinction.


With the influence of so many breeds a standard was never agreed upon.
