About Dongola HorsesAbout Dongola Horses



Dongola (also known as Dongolah or Dongolawi) horses originedrnin the Sudan in the Dongola Province, Egypt and Eritrea. It is also thoughtrnthat they descended from the Iberian horses that were taken to Egypt from whatrnis now Algeria, in the 13th century. rnrn rnrn 

rnrnThey are taller than Arab horses, but related. They have arnfirey temperament like the Arab and lots of spirit. They have large, long headsrnwhich tend to be narrow, a convex profile, flat croups, poorly attached loins,rnand thin legs. Their chest is flat and high. They are a deep reddish bay, blackrnand chestnut with white markings on the face, lower legs and tail. They tend tornbe 15-15.2 hands high. Much of this is from poor breeding management. Some ofrnthe Dongola are nicely conformed, have endurance and vitality. An effort isrnbeing made to bring back the breed and imporve it by the Institute of AnimalrnResearch in Garou.rnrn 

rnrnThey were introduced into Ireland and bred to create fasterrnhunting horses.
