Beginning

In 1816 chestnut Egyptian Arabian "Gidran Senior", born in 1810, was imported to Lipizza by Count Fechting. There he was mated with Spanish mare "Arrogante", who was then transferred pregnant to Mezöhegyes. There they established one of the three most importand breeds of Hungary, the Gidran horse. As the type of the horse became more and more thoroughbred in character people started to bring oriental blood.
Nowadays they are purebred in Marcopuszta stud under supervision of the Pannon university.
