Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Kisber Felver is a sport horse breed developed at the former Kisber Stud in Hungary, founded in 1853. Kisber Stud initially bred Thoroughbreds and was very successful, producing champions such as the mare Kincsem, who won 54 races and was entered in The Guinness Book of World Records. Through a carefully controlled breeding program, a distinct type evolved. The Kisber Felver was bred by crossing Thoroughbreds with Furiosos, Trakehners, Arabians, Anglo-Arabians, and Selle Francais, keeping a high percentage of Thoroughbred blood. The Kisber Felver is a relatively young breed, developed over the past hundred years, and they display good conformation, athletic ability, movement, and a lively temperament. Unfortunately, World War I and World War II nearly wiped them out. In 1945, more than half of the breeding stock were taken as war spoils. 150 Kisber Felver horses were imported for the US Remount, but were sold at public auction in 1947 when the remount disbanded. Unlike other European imports such as the Lipizzaner, the Kisber Felvers were largely lost to crossbreeding. In 1961, the Dalmand Stud took the remaining horses, and they are still bred there today.show more
