Colour: Black.

Height: average 14.3 to 15.3hh.

Conformation: head is rather long but fine. The ears are short but alert. The eyes are dark and expressive. The neck is elegantly and impressively arched. The mane is long and flowing.
The shoulders are powerful and well muscled. The chest is prominent. The body is compact, strong and deep. The hindquarters are not massive, but strong, with a sloping croup, and a low-set, very luxuriant tail.

Character: quiet, willing, hard-working and sensitive.
