2013, Czech Republic, Horses
designer: Peter Oriesek

The Chumlec horses from the Kinsky stud farm are among the best horses bred in the Czech Republic. They are admired for their extremely glossy, almost metallic, golden colour as much as for their stamina, athleticism and good character.  During the Prussian War, the Kinsky's, a member of the Bohemian nobility, were ordered to develop their stud farm and breed good quality horses for the elite cavalry. Apart from military and police, they are best suited for dressage, steeplechases, show jumping, fox hunting and polo.

For: horses
