The Hungarian breed - North Star -
Though not extinct the North Star breed is no longer registered as a breed with the authorities in Budapest, instead they are now considered part of the Furioso breed. Always linked the two breeds were originally bred in the south of the country at the same stud. The Furioso blood lines coming from a stallion called Furioso and the North Star coming from a Stallion called North Star.
The North Star is lighter boned than the Furioso and are predominantly black in colour , they are a very beautiful horse and have a good temperament.
I was fortunate to have one of the last of the North Star breed to be branded with the dedicated North Star brand ( which is no longer used )- she is now living in the UK with wonderful owners who will look after her properly.
