Use and characteristics of the Leonhard
The Leonhard is the outcome of years of development using three foundation breeds, the Welsh Cob, the Haflinger and the Pura Raza Española (PRE). Individuals of the breed can stand between 13.3 hands (55 inches/140 cm) and 16 hands (64 inches/162 cm) high, meaning there’s a versatile height range available for those who buy a Leonhard. The aim is to bring out the best qualities of each of the foundation breeds so that the surefootedness and strength of the Haflinger combine with the elegance and elevation of the PRE and the power and drive of the Welsh cob. The proof of the success of this combination can be seen in the interest when an owner decides to sell a Leonhard. Many coat colours are available, from black to sorrel.
