Metis Trotter

A fairly recent breed of horse developed in the early 1950s by crossing the Orlov trotter with imported American Standardbreds. The Metis trotter though less attractive than the Orlov in appearance, has a faster pace and is quicker on the racetrack.

It stands at about 15.3 h.h. and is either grey, black, brown, chestnut or bay. The head is slightly plain; It has inherited the upright shoulder of the Orlov though it is powerful; the girth is deep though the body tends to be long; the limbs are strong with good bone.
