About Kazakh HorsesAbout Kazakh Horses



Kazakh horses were developed by the Kazakh people, who livernmainly in Kazakhstan, but also in parts of China, Mongolia, Russia, andrnUzbekistan. Kaszakh horses are used mainly for riding and are known for theirrnhardiness and stamina.rnrn 

rnrnThis group of steppe horses was numerous as early as the 5thrncentury B.C. Since then Kazakh horses were influenced by many breeds -rnMongolian, Karabair, Arabian, and Akhal-Teke horses. In the late 20th century, Kazakhrnhorses have been improved by the Thoroughbred, Orlov Trotter and Don.    

rnrnKazakhstan horses are kept on pastures the year round. Theyrnare concentrated in western Kazakhstan. In this vast territory they have becomerndifferentiated into various ecological types and varieties. The most widespreadrnare: the Jabe and the Adaev. Jabe horses were formed in southern districts ofrnAktubinsk regions and then spread all over Kazakhstan.rnrn 

rnrn rnrnTheir most important characteristics are: rugged head, thickrnneck, wide body and deep chest. The back is straight and the croup wellrnmuscled. Legs are set correctly and are sufficiently strong. The skin is thickrnand dense; hair covering is rather good. Color is bay, dark bay or red,rnoccasionally grayish or grey. The measurements of stallions (in cm) are: heightrnat withers 144, chest girth 180, and cannon bone girth 19; those of mares arernlower 142, 178, and 18.8 respectively. Considering their small measurements,rnKazakh horses of the Jabe type have a high live weight - 400-500 kg. Milk andrnmeat performance of Jabe horses are very high - some mares yield up to 20 kg ofrnmilk at hand-milking and they fatten quickly.rnrn 

rnrnHorses of the Adaev type have a more pronounced saddlerncharacter; they have a more clean-cut conformation, light head, long neck,rnwell-defined withers, and straight back. However, horses with narrow chest andrntoo light bone occur because of the primitive management conditions.
