About Calabrese Horses
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.
Calabrese horses are
easy to train, strong, vivacious, and docile. They have excellent balance, fast,
and good jumpers.
