soviet heavy draft

They evolved through crossing native mares with imported Percheron and Belgian stallions and interbreeding the progeny. This resulted in a heavy draft horse of massive build, but with surprisingly free movement at walk and trot. They are one of the most common draft horses in the Soviet Union and are frequently used to improve other heavy draft breeds. They mature quickly, but are less resistant to disease than some other breeds.

The Soviet Heavy Draft originated in Russia at the end of the 19th century, becoming established in 1940.
