Also called Plevna & Pleveska, the Pleven is a half-bred horse that comes from Bulgaria. Development began in 1898 by crossing the best local animals with Arabian & Anglo-Arabian blood and later Gidran stallions were introduced. By 1951 there had become a fixed type and the breed was officially recognized.
