[ INDEX ] Equine Type: Horse Breed: Ban Ei (Banei) [ PREV ] [ NEXT ]
A legendary draft racehorse:
The Ban Ei was created in the early 20th century by crossing Percheron, Breton, and Belgian Heavy Draft (Brabant) horses. Today, it is accepted to cross any of these three breeds with Ban Ei horses.
Originally, the Ban Ei served for farm work and logging, but soon enough it became the prominent breed for "Ban Ei horse-pulling races" in Japan. This popular race requires the horses to pull an iron sled, which can weigh up to 1 ton, over a 200-meters long course, that features 2 small hills and a sandy slope on the way to the finish line.
Being bred to excel in Ban Ei Races, Ban Ei horses have a heavily wide and muscular build. While they can weigh over a ton, they still have a spectacular combination of strength and endurance, making them the most ideal horses for horse-pulling draft competitions.
Ban Ei horses have a large head, a short, muscular neck, a short back, a muscular croup, a broad chest, and thick legs. Their wide body is massively muscular and can weigh up to a ton.
The mane and tail can grow long and be wavy, and the legs have feathering which ranges from light to medium in thickness.
