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.

The Arabian's conformation and type have been selectively bred for longer than any other breed of horse.

The Bedouins of the Arabian desert were dependent for survival on their Arabian horses. 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.

Bardigiano horses, also known as Bardigiano Ponies, are from Bardi, Italy.

The first horses that populated Bardi were brought during the Roman Era. During the centuries, the breed developed as a mountain horse; in the 15th century, there were attempts to make it more gentle by cross-breeding it with Arabian-Friulian horses, thus obtaining a horse very similar to the one of today.

They almost became extinct after the First World War. In 1977, a "Regulation for the selection and for the Genealogic Book o ...

Calabrese - Breeds of HorseCalabrese

Calabrese Horses originated in Calabria and were derived from a group of Arabian horses imported from North Africa. During the Bourbon period, they were crossbred with Andalusian horses. In more recent times, they were bred with Saleritano horses and English Thoroughbreds, which increased their size. Every now and then, in order not to lose their original traits, they are bred with Arabian horses.

Calabrese horses are easy to train, strong, vivacious, and docile. They have excellent balance, fast, and good jumpers.

Caspian horses are small originally from Iran. Although generally no more than 12 hands (1.22 metres) high, they are nevertheless considered to be a horse rather than a pony.

Friesian horses, or Frizian horse, are a horse breed that originated in Friesland, which certainly makes sense. FYI: Friesland is in the Netherlands. They are used both in harness and under saddle and most recently they are being used in dressage.   They are black with some occasional white marking; however, the only white marking allowed on a studbook-registered horse is a small star. They are 15.2 to 16.0 hands tall on average and weight 1300 + pounds.

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 ...

New Zealand Hackney 'Almondo Tango' (Photo by Jeni Bassett Equine Attitude)
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 the t ...

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.

Due to the harsh climate and the lack of vegetation over more than one half of the country, the Icelandic horse had an extremely difficult existence. Only the strongest and the fittest could survive.

As a result of a plague in Europe, Iceland quarantined itself for many years. In AD 930 a law was passed to ban the importation of horses an ...

Italian saddle horses are a recent creation and are excellent horses for show jumping, dressage, eventing, endurance. They were created by crossing many Italian breeds, with the Sardinian Anglo-Arab predominating.

The Italian Trotter is a harness racing horse developed over the last century by crossing Thoroughbred stallions with French (Norman) trotters, Russian Trotters and American Standardbred mares. The goal of the selection was to blend the speed of the Standardbred with the stamina of the French Trotter. The result is a large, physically powerful horse standing up to 17 hands (68 inches, 173 cm) at the withers, with athletic ability and capable of defeating Standardbreds on the race track.

Kaimanawa are wild horses from New Zealand. The first horses arrived in New Zealand in 1814, and mobs of feral horses were reported as early as the 1870s. The principal (and only remaining) herds became established in the North Island’s Central Plateau, where they became known in general as the “Kaimanawa Wild Horses”.

Because of increasing concern by the public for their supposed declining numbers, a Committee, under the umbrella of the Forest Service, was formed in 1978 to look after the horses’ interests, and a protected a ...

Its origins date from the mid-16th century, through an initiative of the Archduke Charles of Stiria, third child of the Emperor Ferdinand I of Austria.

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.

But the real development of the Murgese horse was thanks to the Counts of Conversano. They were a family of farsighted nobles who were very adept in choosing horses for importation and careful in selecting those which fitted the needs of the time and the character of the area.

Indeed, the Etruscans chose this place as their centre for horse-breeding, established near the Greek settlements on the Flegrean coast.

National Show Horses originated as a part-Arabian cross between an American Saddlebred and an Arabian horse. They are now established as a separate breed, since the founding of a breed registry in 1981.

National Show Horses combine the refinement of Arabian Horses with the animation of Saddlebred horse. The resulting horse has the high-set, upright, long, swan-like neck of the Saddlebred. The neck should not have a pronounced crest. The head is usually refined and small, with small ears and either a straight or concave profile. ...

Arthur Young, one of the earliest writers on British livestock, and who himself came from Suffolk, was the first to refer, in 1771, to the area’s 'noble breed of horfes', as a distinct breed. He noted that even in his childhood (he was born in 1741) the Suffolk was referred to as ‘The Old Breed.’ It is almost certainly the oldest existing pure breed of draught horse to have originated in England.
