Orlov - horses for sale
The Orlov, also known as the Orlov Trotter, is one of Russia’s most admired horse breeds. Created by Count Alexius Grigorievich Orlov in the eighteenth century, the Orlov is a case history in how selective breeding produces a distinctive type in a short space of time. Although as a trotter it has been outstripped in speed by other breeds such as the American Standardbred, it is still popular at sporting events in Russia where many people buy an Orlov for competition. Orlovs are also notably beautiful horses. Breeders who sell an Orlov are ensuring the future of a breed that is a living link to Russia’s fascinating past.
