Balagur (NOT a warmblood still competing at the Olympics, which is not something common from what I know): started as circus horse -> mounted police horse -> bought by dressage rider Alexandra Korelova

P.S. I was lucky to ride the horses of the breed several times. Nice disposition (very tolerant and willing), awesome huge trot, and natural headset (even though I know lots people don't like the word ).
