[ INDEX ] Equine Type: Horse Breed: American Brabant   [ PREV ] [ NEXT ]
The American Brabant is a subtype of the Brabant breed.

American Brabants were developed from Brabant horses that were imported from Europe to the USA during the 21st century. American breeders selectively bred these horses to have the same heavy conformation as the European Brabant, but to also have less feathering. This difference, in the amount of feathering, is the most visible difference between the American Brabant and the European Brabant (that is heavily feathered).

American Brabant horses come in the colors of bay, chestnut, and, more rarely, black and grey. They often have a roan coat as well. Brabant horses stand between 15.2hh and 17hh.

(For more info see the 'Brabant'.)
