Developed for the breeding of Thoroughbred horses, the Kisber Felver was developed in Hungary. Many racing horses were produced by the stud, including an unbeatable mare that is in the Guinness Book of World Races for over 54 races. The Kisber Felver was created over a hundred years ago from careful selection, and a controlled breeding program to create the desirable sport horse in conformation, movement, athletic ability and temperament.
World War I and II have left Hungary with nearly none of their horses. There are Kisber Felver horses in the US from public auctions in 1947 when a few people understood the value of these horses and brought them to the states.
Kisber Felvers are able to perform in all horse disciplines, and breeding aims to produce horses that are beautiful, have great endurance, character and mental and physical balance. They range in size from 15 to 17 hands.
