About Andravida HorsesAbout Andravida Horses



Andravida (also called the Eleia, Ilia, or Greek) horses arerna rare light draft breed found in the region of Ilia, Greece.

Andravida Horses arernpredominantly brown, bay, chestnut, red roan, black and occasionally grey. Thernhead is rectangular in shape and plain with long ears and a straight profile.rnThe chest is broad and heavy-set with thick muscles; the back is slightlyrndipped. Their temperament is described as willing but strong. They are ofrnmoderate height ranging between 14 to 16 hands (56 to 64 inches, 142 to 163 cm)rnhigh with the average being at around 15 hands (60 inches, 152 cm).

The ancestors of thernAndravida horses were said to be used as cavalry horses by the Athenians in thern4th century BC as well as war horses by the Greek in the 7th century. During thern13th to 15th centuries Arabian blood was used to refine the stock. Anglo-Normanrnhorses were used for improving the breed, but it gradually began to decline andrnwas revived only in the early part of 1990s. An Andravida stud sired around 50rnhealthy colts which were sent to breeders throughout Greece. This one animalrnmay have saved the breed from extinction and became the foundation for thernofficial studbook established in 1995. Their numbers remain very low; they arernrarely found anywhere outside of Ilia.
