3-D Flags
Country of Origin:Poland

Two now extinct Polish breeds are the Pozan and the Mazury. The Pozan, or Poznan, horse was developed in Poland. This breed is extremely rare. These horses are known to be quite noteworthy. It was bred at the studs at Posadowo, Racot, and Gogolewo. The Pozan was a mixture of Arabian, Thoroughbred, Trakehner, and Hanoverian blood. It was a middleweight farm worker, very versatile, used for riding and agricultural work. The Mazury, also known as the Masuren, is a now extinct breed of horse. It was once a very notable breed, developed in Poland, and was a quality riding horse. It mainly originated from the Trakehner, and, crossed with the Pozan went on to develop the Wielkopolski breed. The Mazury was bred at the stud at Liski in the Masuria region. In 1963 a Polish postage stamp showing a Mazury horse was issued.

These two breeds formed a base, on which Thoroughbred, Arabian, and Anglo-Arabian blood was further added.
