About Anglo-Arabo-Sardo Horses
Sardinian, horses originated in Sardinia, Italy.
When the Saracens
dominated the island of Sardinia, Arab stallions had been crossed with
Sardinian mares of smaller size. At the beginning of the 16th century those
horse were used for crosses with Andalucian stallions. In the course of the
nineteenth century, thanks to the introduction of English thoroughbreds (thus, the prefix "Anglo").
Modern day Anglo-Arabo-Sardo
horses are quite different from those of the past. Like the
French and American Anglo-Arab horses the Sardian Anglo-Arabs have obtaining
excellent results as showjumpers and as a race horse. They are a saddle horse
and light draught animal with a noble bearing.
