About Taishuh Horses
Taishu (taishu uma) or Tsushima (Tsushima uma) are small rare
Japanese horses from Tsushima Island in the Korea Strait, in Nagasaki
They are an ancient breed, believed to date back to the
eighth century. In 1920, there were more than 4000 of them, but only about 65
remain today. Due to their gentle nature and strong willingness to obey, Tiasho
are often ridden by farmers’ wives and children. Nevertheless, they are also
known for endurance and ability to survive on little food and in severe
weather, and may even be used for light draft.
