Galloping Merens stallion. Rich, shining coat against a stunning black backdrop. "Merens horse is known for its elegance, and in 2005 was ranked as one of the 23 most beautiful horse breeds by the French magazine Cheval Pratique," explains Ida. "The general appearance of a Merens is strong and compact, with energetic movement. The coat is always black, but may have a reddish cast during the winter."
