About Garrano do Minho HorsesAbout Garrano do Minho Horses



Garrano (also known as Minho, Minho, or Tres os Montes)rnhorses are an ancient breed, descended from the same stock as the famousrnSorraias. Sorraias live mainly between the two rivers Sor and Raia, while Garranosrnlives in North-Portugal, so they developed differently according to theirrnhabitats. Garranos mainly lives in the fertile regions of Minho andrnTrás-os-Montes e Alto Douro, and have probably had more outside blood influencernthan Sorraias.rnrn 

rnrnIt is generally believed that the Garrano is one of thernancestors to Andalusian and Galician Ponies. Recently, they have had infusionsrnof Arabian blood, implemented by the Portuguese Ministry of Agriculture. Thisrnhas refined the breed, but the ponies have also begun to lose some of theirrnprimitive features.rnrn
