The Hungarian Sport Horse, Hungarian: 'Magyar sportló', is a modern Hungarian breed of sporting horse. Like the Furioso-North Star, the Gidran, and the Nonius, it was developed at the Hungarian State Stud Mezőhegyes, in Békés county in the Southern Great Plain region of south-eastern Hungary.[2]: 473  At the end of 2012, the total number for the breed was reported to be 1091.[4] The breeders' association is the Magyar Sportlótenyésztők Országos Egyesülete, or Association of Hungarian Sporthorse Breeders.[5][6]

The Breeders' Association (MSLT) organises shows and tests to maintain and develop the traits of the breed. According to their Rules of Breeding , the stud book is open to horses accepted by the MSLT based on their characteristics if they belong to a breed recognized in the EU and/or belong to a breed which is a member organisation of the WBFSH, or if it is an arab, purebred arab or English thoroughbred horse. Also accepted are all recognized traditional warmblood breeds of Hungary, including the Kisbéri.
