Albanian Horses originated inrnthe 5th century, during the Ottoman Empire. They are a small horse (12-13rnhands high) and belong to the Balkan group. Native Albanian horses came from eitherrnthe Mountain or Myzeqea plains of Albania. Albanian Horses were originally thoughtrnto have been created by breeding Arabian horses with the local Albanian horses,rnwhich were likely combined with Tarpan, Turkmenian, or Mongolian stock breeds.

Albanaian horses typically haverncoats of Bay, Black, Chestnut and Gray. They are high energy horses, and have arnstrong endurance. They are agile, sure-footed, disease resistant, and can functionrnin difficult terrain. In the past these horses were used more for transport andrnriding than for agricultural purposes.

Since the 1990’s Albanaian horsesrnhave been crossed with purebred Arabs, Nonius, and Haflinger breeds to increaserntheir size for better agricultural work and to increase their population. Several improved breed types are emerging from these efforts.
