Thought to descend from the prehistoric Solutré horse, the Ardennais is one of the most ancient horse breeds in Europe. The use of this breed dates back to Ancient Rome. First bred for the purposes of war, then agriculture, the Ardennais was considered one of the best breeds of draft horse. At the end of the XIXth century, the breed’s legendary characteristics as coach and draft horse slowly gave way to that of heavy draft horse. The Ardennais’ coat color is usually roan or bay, with dark and abundant feathering.
