Horse Riding Holidays in Bulgaria
Horse Riding Holidays in Bulgaria.
What is known today as the “East Bulgarian” is a relative new-comer to the equine world. Local horses were crossed with Arabs and Thoroughbreds to produce the East Bulgarian which was recognised in 1951 with the opening of its own stud book.
The East Bulgarian is between 15 hh to 16 hh (60 to 64 inches, 152 to 163 cm) and generally comes in bay tones. They are known for a quiet disposition and good conformation: fine head, straight profile and muscular neck. They have strong shoulders, a full and deep chest, a straight, long back and muscular legs. All this means that your riding holiday in Bulgaria will get off to a good start.
