About Nangchen HorsesAbout Nangchen Horses



Nangchen horses are a small breed of horse native to thernKham region of northern Tibet. They are thought to have been bred pure sincernthe 9th century. They became known to the western world in 1994 due to thernexploration of French anthropologist Michel Peissel.rnrn 

rnrnThey are said to contain no ancestry from any of the commonrnsources for most other Tibetan pony breeds, neither Mongolian horse, Arabianrnnor any type of Turkish blood. They are powerful and fast; and have many of therncharacteristics of a modern racehorse. They have refined features, arernpony-sized, but tall for ponies, swift and agile. Their unique characteristicsrninclude adaptations to the very high altitude of the region, including enlargedrnlungs.rnrn 

rnrnIn 1995, Peissel returned to Tibet in hopes of purchasingrnsome individual animals to study in more detail, but he was unable to do so duernto the high prices asked for the animals by local tribesmen. On their way back,rnPeissel's expedition took an alternate route through a remote area andrndiscovered the Riwoche horse.
