About Calabrese Horses
originated in Calabria and were derived from a group of Arabian horses imported
from North Africa. During the Bourbon period, they were crossbred with Andalusian
horses. In more recent times, they were bred with Saleritano horses and English
Thoroughbreds, which increased their size. Every now and then, in order not to
lose their original traits, they are bred with Arabian horses.
are easy to train, strong, vivacious, and docile. They have excellent balance,
fast, and good jumpers.
