Also called the Kisber Felver, the Kisber Halfbred was developed at the Kisber Stud Farm (est. 1853) in Hungary. The goal was to replace the often high strung English Thoroughbred with an animal that was more versatile to upgrade local stock.


Local animals were crossed with the English Thoroughbreds and then the finest specimens were selected for further crossing among themselves. Later, to add size & stature Furioso & East Prussian were also included.

In 1961 stock was transferred to the Dalmand farm where they are still bred today.
