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.

They can take long strides and are able to keep up with normal-sized horses while walking, trotting, or cantering, despite their smaller stature. The most common colors are bay and black, though they may also be grey, dun, ...

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 ...

Gypsey Vanner horses (also known as Irish Cob, Colored Cob, Gypsy Cob, Tinker Horse, and Gypsy Horses) originated in the British Isles. They are a small, solidly-built horse of cob conformation and are often, but not always, piebald or skewbald. They are the only broken-colored horse breed of the British Isles, and are particularly associated with the Pavee and Roma travelling peoples of Britain and Ireland.  

From about 1850 travelling people in the British Isles began to use a distinct type of horse to pull their va ...

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 - Breeds of HorseIcelandic


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 ...

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 ...

But the real development of the Murgese horse was thanks to the Counts of Conversano.

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.

Tolfetano - Breeds of HorseTolfetano


The Tolfetano horse is originally from central Italy, and in particular from Monti della Tolfa, the area between Rome and Viterbo which was once Etruscan.

The breed was already well-known at the time of the Etruscans. It is very hardy, and still bred in the wild. This breed is strong, well-built and tough.

Once used as a pack-horse and for rounding up cattle, it is now normally used for riding in the countryside, or raised for meat on pasturage unsuitable for cattle.

Ventasso - Breeds of HorseVentasso


The name of this population of horses comes from the mountain of the same name located in the high Val d'Enza, in the province of Reggio Emilia, where the presence of horses has been documented from the times of the Duke Ferdinand of Bourbon to those of the Serenissimi Farnese and the Duchy of Maria Louisa of Austria. Even after the unification of Italy and up to the 1940s these lands continued to supply horses to the army.

Welsh cob Horses have the overall proportions of Welsh Mountain Ponies but are much larger. They stand from 13.2hh with no upper height limit. They stand with arched neck, four legs in a square, and a well set tail held with pride. Their feet are well shaped and as hard as nails ensuring longevity – the old saying “no foot, no horse” still holds true today. They have a very well laid-back shoulder with a long slope which ensures a comfortable horse to ride. In movement they use their whole foreleg which extends forward from the elbow wit ...
