The Large Boulonnais (also known as 'Grand Boulonnais') is a subtype of the Boulonnais breed.

The ideal Boulonnais for the farm:
Back in the 17th century, Boulonnais horses were relatively small in size, and stood only between 15hh and 15.3hh. They were energetic horses with impressive endurance that excelled in pulling fish carts from the Boulonnais district to Paris fast enough that the fish stayed fresh. Unfortunately, what they didn't excel in was farm work.

In order to make these small Boulonnais horses more suitable for farm work, French breeders bred their horses to increase their size. They managed to generate a larger subtype of the Boulonnais breed, which became known as the "Large Boulonnais" ('Grand Boulonnais.')
