About Catria HorsesAbout Catria Horses



rnrnCatria Horses arernfrom Monte Catria, Italy, and neighbouring areas (Central Appennines), spread overrnthe provinces of Pesaro, Ancona and Perugia.

rnrnContinuous contactsrnwith the people of Maremma in Tuscany, chiefly with those involved in charcoal-burning,rnexplain the introduction and the influence of the local equine population of Maremagno.rnIn the post-war years the herds of horses diminished considerable, but the originalrnpopulation, derived from the maremmano breed, held on in mountain areas which werernonly good for pasture land from wild horses.

rnrnAfter a period ofrnmany crosses with various bloodlines, in 1974 the Special Co-operative Agency ofrnCatria took over the management of the local studs, controlling in particular crossesrnwith the Franches Montagnes, and since 1980 have registered foals so as to safeguardrnand improve the original stock.

rnrnCatra horsese arernused in mountain agriculture, as a saddle horse for sport, and for the productionrnof meat. They are sober, robust, rustic, and ideal to make use of pastures in marginalrnareas.
