Argentine Anglo horses are from Argentina. They are well
known for their use in equestrian sports. They are lightweight horses that
exhibit a refined appearance and excellent performance capabilities. They are
also energetic, intelligent, and obedient.
In the 1960s Argentine Anglo horses were developed by
crossing English Thoroughbred stallions with Argentine Criollo mares to produce
the lightweight polo horses with great fitness and agility.
Argentine Anglos are medium sized, have expressive heads, long
necks, inclined shoulders, an long and elastic back with a muscular croup;
solid legs, strong bones and joints; plus small, hard hooves. They are
generally gray, bay, or sorrel and are around 15 hands tall.
They are commonly used in Polo, for pleasure riding, and as
a show horse. They are healthy, long-lived, and not known to be affected by any
breed-specific health issues.
