Features of the riding Budennovskaya breed of horses (part 2)

The Budyonnovsky breed of horses is grown exclusively in herds. As they graze on limited pastures, wayward and naughty mares are found that interfere with everyone else. Such individuals need to be excluded, because among thoroughbred horses complaisance, intelligence, contact and lack of aggression are appreciated.

Foals from mothers are taken away in October-November. It is noteworthy that young animals born from February to May are weaned at the same time.
