About Turk HorsesAbout Turk Horses



Turk (also known as Turkmene, Turkmen, or Turkmenian) horses are an ancient Turkoman breed. They are thought to be extinct in its pure form. Horses bred in Turkmenistan are still called by the same name; however most likely the purest descendants of this ancient breed are the Barb, Akhal-Teke, and Iomud horses. Of the three, Akhal-Teke breeding has been kept the purest and probably the closest to actual Turkoman blood.

The original Turk horses was a robust animal built for carrying heavily armed soldiers into battle - this build remains in the breed of today.

On average they were 15 - 16 hands high. Their head was well proportioned with a straight profile. Their neck was long and lean. Their back was long and straight. Their chest was deep with long shoulders. Generally they were chestnut, grey, bay, or black. Their temperament was spirited and intelligent, bold and honest.
