About Uzunyayla HorsesAbout Uzunyayla Horses



Uzunyayla horses come from the Caucasus. Their origin datesrnto 1854 in Turkey. They were bred pure in Turkey until 1930, when Anadolu ponyrnand Nonius horses were introduced.

rnrnUzunyayla horses have a large head with a concave profile;rntheir eyes are small; their neck is of medium length; their withers are wellrnpronounced; their legs are strong with good joints; their pasterns are slopedrnand very strong; their feet are well shaped and have a tough horn. They arernusually bay in colour. The feathering on their legs are coarse, and their tailrngrows very long. They stand between 14.1 and 15.1 hands (57 and 61 inches, 145rnand 155 cm) high.rnrn 

rnrnThey are very good for riding long distances. Uzunyaylarnhorses have a good gallop but cannot do the rahvan walk like some other Turkishrnbreeds. Their normal walking speed is not fast as is seen in the Anadolu breed.rnThey are used as a pack horse, a light draft horse and as a general ridingrnhorse.rnrn 

rnrnThere is no association or stud book for the Uzunyaylarnbreed, but breeders hope that one will be formed in the near future. Presentlyrnthere are only about 2,000 specimens of this breed.
