Horse Breeds

The modern horse has evolved over the past 45 to 55 million years from a small multi-toed animal into the large, single-toed animal of today. Humans began to domesticate horses around 4000 BC, and their domestication is believed to have been widespread by 3000 BC. Worldwide many products are many from horses, including meat, milk, hide, hair, bone, and pharmaceuticals extracted from the urine of pregnant mares; however, in the US they are predominately used for sport and recreation.

Horse breeds are loosely divided into three categories based on general temperament: spirited "hot bloods" with speed and endurance; "cold bloods", such as draft horses and some ponies, suitable for slow, heavy work; and "warmbloods", developed from crosses between hot bloods and cold bloods, often focusing on creating breeds for specific riding purposes, particularly in Europe. There are more than 300 breeds of horse in the world today, developed for many different uses.

About Adaev HorsesAdaev


Adaev, or Aedaevskaya, horses are native to the Caspian Depression of Kazakhstan and originally consisted of two sub-types of Kazakh horses, Adaev and Dzhab, or Jabe, horses. However, because Adaev horses were used extensively to improve the Jabe stock, the Adaev breed was nearly decimated. Due to an increased interest in preserving bloodlines of the breed, 27,000 Adaev horses were gathered by breeders in 1985 to restore their number. The breeders then worked toward refining the breed by mixing Kazakh blood with that of Don, Thoro ...

About  American Saddlebred Horses American Saddlebred


American Saddlebred Horses originated from Galloway and Hobbie horses imported from Britain. These two breeds were crossed to create the Narragansett Pacer, which was crossed to the Thoroughbred in the 1700s to produce the elegant “American Horse,” used for both riding and driving. Arabian and Morgan blood was later added to create the American Saddlebred. The American Saddlebred is considered the ultimate show horse. Horses are exhibited in driving, English—most notably saddleseat—and western classes.

About  American Warmblood Horses American Warmblood


Photo by Lisa Barckley
American Warmblood is more of a "type" than a "breed" of horse. Like most of the European warmbloods, with the American Warmblood there is more emphasis on producing quality sport horses, rather than the preservation of any particular bloodlines. This allows for much diversity in the bloodlines of American Warmbloods. The American Warmblood has been influenced by the European warmbloods, the Thoroughbred and the Arabian, as well as some draft horse breeds.

There are two registries in the United States which recognize American ...

While they valued the beauty of their horses, they were equally adamant that their horses were strong, with deep chests, straight legs, large joints and good lungs to carry them across large stretches of their desert homeland. Historical figures like Genghis Khan, Napoleon, Alexander The Great and George Washington rode Arabians.

Danish Warmbloods, formerly know as the Danish Sports Horse, are large-framed horses from Denmark. They were developed by crossing Frederiksbork horses with Thoroughbreds. The mares resulting from this were then bred with Anglo-Norman horses, Thoroughbreds, and Trakehners. This and selective breeding produced a Danish Warmblood. Danish Warmbloods are the youngest of all European warmblood breeds.

Danish Warmbloods are similar to Thoroughbreds but they have a more substantial build. They are known to be very cooperative, intelli ...

About  Danube Delta Horses Danube Delta


Danube Delta horses are a feral breed that are found in and around the Letea Forest of Romania. It is documented that 300 to 400 years ago the ancestors of these horses were brought by the Tatars to the north of the Danube delta. The collapse of communism in 1989 along with the nation’s economy led to farms closing and releasing the horses into the wild. As a result, there are roughly, 3600 of these horses live in the Danube Delta and 500 in the Letea nature reserve.

Danube Delta horses are considered to be either large po ...

Over many centuries ponies were allowed to run freely on the high moorland of Devon in the south west of England. These ponies were well adapted to the harsh climate. As the trade route between Exeter and Plymouth became more important the native ponies came in contact with the many different horse breeds that travelled on that road. They also were influenced by Arabian and Barb horses brought back by Crusaders. During the Industrial Revolution the Dartmoor Ponies were crossed with small Shetland Ponies in order to produce a breed small ...

About Dosanko HorsesDosanko

Dosanko horses, also known as Hokkaido washu, are a popular Japanese breed of horse. It is believed that Dosanko horses were brought to Hokkaido, Japan, by fishermen from Honshu during the Edo period (1600–1867). They were used for transportation, but were left in Hokkaido when the fishermen returned home in autumn. The ponies were expected to survive in very harsh weather, in a land with very little vegetation, covered with snow, which is how the Hokkaido pony developed its exceptional enduring strength for which it is known today.

Their bloodlines date back more than 600 years in Westphalia, Germany where there have always been pockets of land for them to roam. Over time their territories were shaped by the urban growth, until the mid 19th century when the Duke of Croy had them rounded up and taken to a refuge.

Fjord horses are one of the oldest horse breeds in the world. They are believed to be related to Przewalski (primitive Asiatic Wild Horses), but their exact origin is unclear. The Vikings used Fjord horses as their war mounts. Spending many centuries in mountainous terrain resulted in Fjord horses developing into a strong, sure-footed horse, well adapted to the severe weather conditions needing very little care. They proved to be the perfect pack horse on mountain trails and well suit for light draught work on hilly farms.

Also known as the “Cavallino della Giara” (The little horse of Giara), it is originally from the highland region of the same name, in Sardinia. Little is known about its origins. Probably it was brought into Sardinia by the Greeks in the 5th or 4th century B.C., at the time of the nuraghe. It is accustomed to grazing free in its difficult native terrain. To save the horse from extinction a breeding and re-populating center was set up in 1971, at Foresta Burgos in Sardinia. This was established by the “Istituto di Incremento Ippico di ...

About  Hackney Horses Hackney


Hackney (also known as Roadster) horses have a long history. William Youatt, writing in 1838, considered the Road Horse to have developed into the premier English breed. Its essential role was as a working harness horse developed for relatively fast transport on improving roads – as its original name implies. This is reflected in the 1838 woodcut (right) which shows both a signpost and a milestone in the background.

However, the Hackney type was evolving long before this – principally in Yorkshire. References as early as th ...

Icelandic horses are one of the oldest horse breeds in the world. They were brought to Iceland by the first settlers from Norway, in the late ninth to early tenth centuries.

The Maremmano horse originated in the Maremma region of Tuscany and Lazio at the time of the ancient Etruscans. From then until the nineteenth century it kept its original characteristics: squat, strong and skittish. Then, in about 1870, it began to be crossed with more lightly-built and docile horses. In the year 1902, the stallion Fauno was born at the Royal Stables at San Rossore, Versilia, in Tuscany. The result of a cross with an English thoroughbred, he was the first of the so-called “new generation”. The introduction of the En ...

Miniature horses are, as expected, small…really small; usually less than 34–38 inches (86–97 cm) as measured at the last hairs of the mane, which are found at the withers. While miniature horses are the size of a very small pony, many retain horse characteristics and are considered "horses" by their respective registries. They have various colors and coat patterns.

Miniature horses are friendly and interact well with people. For this reason they are often kept as family pets, though they still retain natural horse beha ...

Misaki Horses (Misaki uma in Japanese) are as tall of a pony, yet they have many horse characteristics and proportions. The first reference to Misaki Horses is in 1697, when the Akizuki family of the Takanabe Clan rounded up feral horses and developed a pool of breeding stock. However, following the end of World War II, Misaki horses were designated as a National Natural Treasure and nowadays they have returned to feral life, mainly in a designated National Monument on Cape Toi at the south end of the Miyazaki Prefecture, attracting many ...

Miyako Horses (Miyako Uma in Japanese) originated from Miyako Island in Okinawa, a prefecture known as a horse breeding area for centuries. In 1055, population of the breed peaked at around 10,000. Unfortunately, the increase of motorization caused this number to decline, and by 1983, there were only seven head alive. The population grew to 25 horses by 1993, but had dropped back to 19 by 2001, despite the great efforts to preserve this breed of great antiquity.

Mustang horses are descendants of Spanish, or Iberian, horses that were brought to the Americas by Spanish explorers in the 16th century. The name was derived from the Spanish word mustengo, which means "ownerless beast" or "stray horse." These horses bred with other breeds of horses, including quarter horses and draft horses, to create the breed we know today.

Mustang herds vary greatly on how much they can be traced to the original Iberian horses. Some contain a greater genetic mixture of ranch stock, while others are ...

New Forest Ponies were named after a region in southern England, New Forest. Their exact origin is unknown but ponies have lived in the area for many centuries. During the 18th century the Thoroughbred stallion Marske, father of the famous race horse Eclipse, served New Forest mares. In the mid-19th century one of Queen Victoria's Arabian stallions was allowed to run with the New Forest herd. Hackney blood was also introduced. The cross breeding added to the pony's size but was harmful to the true pony element.
