Fleuve Facts & Information (Breed Profile)
It is one of four horse breeds native to Senegal with the Foutanké, the M’Par and the M’Bayar. They were created by breeding native ponies with Barb horses.
Although little is known about their history, horses have always been vital to Senegal’s social and economic growth, and this breed is no exception.
This breed was used as the basis for developing the Fouta (Foutanké) breed, which is a cross between a Fleuve stallion and an M’Bayar mare.
It is named after the Senegal River (French: fleuve Sénégal).
