About Sella Italiano Horses
Sella Italiano horses were developed in Italy. The Italian
Government has passed a law that created a stud book for the new breed. The
breed is blending the remnant indigenous Italian breeds of Maremmano,
Salernitano, and Persano horses with Anglo Arabo Sardo, Purosangue Orientale,
Arabian and Thoroughbreds. The progeny of said horses can be registered as
Sella Italiano if they can pass a “performance test”. Furthermore, the stud
book is open to other European warmbloods if they can pass the performance test
and be approved by the breed registry. They are intended to produce a sport
horse which can compete successfully at the international level.
minimum height at the withers is set at 156 centimetres (15.1 hands; 61 in).
