Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Kinsky horse or Equus Kinsky was Europe's original sport horse. It was bred until the middle of the 20th century in Bohemia, a part of the modern-day Czech Republic. At one time it was the most prominent breed in that part of the world. Kinsky horses are usually between 15.2 to 17 hands (62 to 68 inches, 157 to 173 cm) in height. They are considered to have stamina, athleticism and good character. Much importance is attached to the balanced, good-natured character of these horses. From birth, Kinsky horses are all very much inclined towards humans, friendly and curious. Around 40% of Kinsky horses have coats in various shades of gold, due to the cream dilution gene, while others are bay, chestnut or black (although black is very rare). The Kinsky horse is known for its extremely glossy, almost metallic, coat. The Kinsky horse is a versatile, multipurpose horse, suited to dressage, military and police applications, eventing, steeplechasing, fox hunting, show jumping and polo.show more
