The Hungarian Sport Horse (also known as 'HSH', 'Hungarian Warmblood', 'Hungarian Sportlo', 'Magyar Sportlo', 'Mezohegyes Sport Horse', and 'Halfblood of Mezohegyes') is a sport warmblood breed originated in Hungary.

Hungarian Roots:
Mezohegyes State Stud is perhaps the most famous stud stable of Hungary. It is the birthplace of Hungary's finest breeds such as the Furioso, Gidran, Kisber-Felver, and Nonius. The latest addition to the Stud came in the 1960s, when these four breeds were mixed with Thoroughbreds, Hanoverians, and Holsteiners, creating the Hungarian Sport Horse.

During the 1970s and 1980s, the initial Hungarian Sport stock was crossed with Selle-Francais, Dutch Warmblood, Belgian Warmblood, and Belgian Halfblood horses as well as with additional German sport warmbloods to create the Hungarian Sport Horse in its modern form.

(The Furioso, Gidran, Kisber-Felver, and Nonius are all found in Horse Isle. See their breed info for more details.)

The Hungarian Sport Horse in the USA:
While being regarded as a Hungarian breed, the Hungarian Sport Horse is also bred in the United States. Its breeding is managed by the Hungarian Horse Association of America, which ensures that every Hungarian Sport Horse has at least 25% Kisber-Felver or Thoroughbred blood.

The Kisber-Felver blood comes from Kisber-Felver horses that are bred in the USA and managed by the same association. They are descendants of the original Kisber-Felver stock that was shipped to the United States following World War II (see 'Kisber-Felver' for more info).

The Hungarian Sport Horse today:
The Hungarian Sport Horse enjoys an international reputation for its talent as a show-jumper, and is bred to excel in Olympic disciplines.

Breeding:
Similar to most other sport warmblood breeds, Hungarian Sport Warmbloods are allowed to be crossed with other European sport warmbloods.

In order to ensure the uniqueness of the Hungarian Sport Horse, Horse Isle follows the breeding guidelines of the Hungarian Horse Association of America. According to these, any Hungarian Sport Horse must have at least 25% Kisber-Felver or Thoroughbred blood.

In Horse Isle, however, Thoroughbreds cannot replace the Kisber-Felver due to technical difficulties, and so we replaced the Thoroughbred with the Hungarian Sport Horse. In other words, a horse must have either one Kisber-Felver parent or one Hungarian Sport Horse parent. The other parent must be either a Thoroughbred, a Hungarian Sport Horse, or one of the approved European sport warmblood breeds.

Conformation:
Hungarian Sport Horses have an athletic build characterized by a light head with a straight profile, a long, arched neck, prominent withers, a long back, and long legs.
