Danubian Horse

Country of Origin: Bulgaria

Danubian Horse


Also called the Dunav, the Danubian is a Bulgarian light draft breed that comes from crossing halfbred mares with Nonius stallions.


Production of this breed began in 1924 near Pleven, Bulgaria. This animal was bred to have a massive & compact constitution for tough farm work. Over the years their use on farms has declined and the breed’s objective moved towards creating a more athletic animal by adding Thoroughbred blood.

Low nutritional and management requirements made this a useful animal.
