.Ardennes horse, or Ardennais. From the Ardennes region of France, Belgium and Luxembourg, its heritage may go back as far as the Roman Empire.

Boulonnais Horse. The breed nearly became extinct following World War II, but rebounded in France in the 1970s as a popular breed for horse meat. Breed numbers remain low; it is estimated that fewer than 1,000 horses remain in Europe, mostly in France, with a few in other nations. Studies as early as 1983 indicated a danger of inbreeding within the Boulonnais population. | Boulonnais Horse
