Jielin Horse

Country of Origin: China



The Jielin Horse comes from the Baicheng, Changchun & Sipling Districts of China which is an agricultural area that is very suitable for horse breeding.


The horses in this area originally came from Mongolia & small in stature. However their small size did not meet the local agricultural requirements. After the 1950’s local bred Ardennes & Don animals were crossed with local stock to provide some height & bulk.

This produced both heavy & light types of the breed which were then carefully cross bred with each other. In 1962 a suitable stallion was named the flagship stud and the new breed was established, it was officially recognized in the late 1970’s.
