About Karabair HorsesAbout Karabair Horses



Karabair, or Karabairskaya, horses are a very old breedrnbased on ancient stock that has been documented as being in the Uzbekistan arearnbefore the Christian era.rnrn 

rnrnIt is likely that the Karabair developed through a mixturernof Arabian and Mongol blood, later influenced by the desert horse breeds fromrnthe neighboring countries, such as the Turkomene, and further infusions of Arabrnblood. Uzbekistan is still populated by a vast number of nomadic peoples whornhave been, through the years, the principal breeders of the Karabair. Theirrnlifestyles accounts for the number of different breeds which have gone towardsrnthe development of the Karabair. They have similarities to the Arab, especiallyrnin their innate toughness and endurance, as well as their speed and agility,rnalthough physically they are less graceful.rnrn rnrn 

rnrnThey are a fairly central element of life to the Uzbekistanrnpeople and are used for riding and driving, as well as in the ridden game ofrnKokpar. Kokpar/Buzkashi is a ferocious game which centers over gainingrnpossession of a dead goat carcass - there are few rules and many injuries, andrnthe Karabair with its bravery and speed is used almost exclusively to play.rnrn rnrn 

rnrnKarabair horses have developed in three different types, allrnof similar height: the first type is suitable for light draft, pack and riding,rnand is a heavier stamp; the second is lighter, and is mainly used for riding;rnand the third has conformation better adapted to draft work. Although now therernis less distinction between the three. The heavier type has almost disappeared,rnand the other two types have more or less amalgamated.
