agile and surefooted.
These are just two characteristics that make the Noriker a popular breed of the mountainous areas of the Austrian Alps. These mountain draft horses are also very strong and persevering. The breed also has a very even temperament and a good-natured character. These characteristics, combined with their exceptional gait and steady trot makes the Noriker a safe and reliable partner in the cavalry.
A special feature of the Noriker is its variety of colours, as well as the most prominent black, chestnut and bay, there are also blue roan, spotted leopard complex and jagged patterns, which makes the breed quite eye-catching.
The landscape, climate and its use in farming have characterised this medium-weight horse. They have been loyal companions for farmers for centuries and are invaluable to the cultural heritage of Austria. There are 3-4 Noriker horses on our farm, which are primarily used for breeding.
