Horse Breeds

The modern horse has evolved over the past 45 to 55 million years from a small multi-toed animal into the large, single-toed animal of today. Humans began to domesticate horses around 4000 BC, and their domestication is believed to have been widespread by 3000 BC. Worldwide many products are many from horses, including meat, milk, hide, hair, bone, and pharmaceuticals extracted from the urine of pregnant mares; however, in the US they are predominately used for sport and recreation.

Horse breeds are loosely divided into three categories based on general temperament: spirited "hot bloods" with speed and endurance; "cold bloods", such as draft horses and some ponies, suitable for slow, heavy work; and "warmbloods", developed from crosses between hot bloods and cold bloods, often focusing on creating breeds for specific riding purposes, particularly in Europe. There are more than 300 breeds of horse in the world today, developed for many different uses.

The Arabian's conformation and type have been selectively bred for longer than any other breed of horse.

The Bedouins of the Arabian desert were dependent for survival on their Arabian horses. While they valued the beauty of their horses, they were equally adamant that their horses were strong, with deep chests, straight legs, large joints and good lungs to carry them across large stretches of their desert homeland. Historical figures like Genghis Khan, Napoleon, Alexander The Great and George Washington rode Arabians.

 Calabrese - Breeds of Horse Calabrese


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.

 Hackney - Breeds of Horse Hackney


Hackney (also known as Roadster) horses have a long history. William Youatt, writing in 1838, considered the Road Horse to have developed into the premier English breed. Its essential role was as a working harness horse developed for relatively fast transport on improving roads – as its original name implies. This is reflected in the 1838 woodcut (right) which shows both a signpost and a milestone in the background.

However, the Hackney type was evolving long before this – principally in Yorkshire. References as early as ...

 Icelandic - Breeds of Horse Icelandic


Icelandic horses are one of the oldest horse breeds in the world. They were brought to Iceland by the first settlers from Norway, in the late ninth to early tenth centuries.

Due to the harsh climate and the lack of vegetation over more than one half of the country, the Icelandic horse had an extremely difficult existence. Only the strongest and the fittest could survive.

As a result of a plague in Europe, Iceland quarantined itself for many years. In AD 930 a law was passed to ban the importation of horses and ot ...

Kaimanawa are wild horses from New Zealand. The first horses arrived in New Zealand in 1814, and mobs of feral horses were reported as early as the 1870s. The principal (and only remaining) herds became established in the North Island’s Central Plateau, where they became known in general as the “Kaimanawa Wild Horses”.

Because of increasing concern by the public for their supposed declining numbers, a Committee, under the umbrella of the Forest Service, was formed in 1978 to look after the horses’ interests, and a protected ...

Indeed, the Etruscans chose this place as their center for horse-breeding, established near the Greek settlements on the Flegrean coast.

He noted that even in his childhood (he was born in 1741) the Suffolk was referred to as ‘The Old Breed.’ It is almost certainly the oldest existing pure breed of draught horse to have originated in England.
