Treyt du Nord (the Nord du Trait) - tyazheloupryazhnaya (Suffolk) horse bred in the early 1900s in France. It is a rare breed that is currently only bred in northern France. She was influenced by Belgian draft horses, Boulogne and Ardennes horses.
The pedigree book of the breed was founded in 1919. Treit du Nord continued to be widely used in agriculture during World War II, but after the end of the war, the breed's population declined significantly as agriculture became more mechanized. After the decline in demand among farmers, the breed began to be bred for meat, but in the early 1970s the horse meat market began to decline, and the number of the breed declined even more. And only by 1990 there was a slight increase in the number of livestock, as horses began to be actively used in tourism.
There are currently two different types in the breed: heavy and light. The light type is usually used for faster work, usually at the trot.
Treit du Nord - very powerful, strong and hardy horses with an agreeable character, possessing great draft power. They are perfect for towing heavy loads over short distances, and are used in forestry and household work in mountainous areas and on difficult terrain.
