About Tolfetano Horses
The Tolfetano horse is
originally from central Italy, and in particular from Monti della Tolfa, the
area between Rome and Viterbo which was once Etruscan.
The breed was already
well-known at the time of the Etruscans. It is very hardy, and still bred in
the wild. This breed is strong, well-built and tough.
Once used as a
pack-horse and for rounding up cattle, it is now normally used for riding in
the countryside, or raised for meat on pasturage unsuitable for cattle.
