Karabakh Horses

ShushaKarabakh horse breed is one of the most ancient breeds in the world. Mountains of Karabakh are its homeland. Medium-sized, with small head, Karabakh horses are notable for their beautiful golden chestnut color and well developed muscular system. For many centuries these horses had been the pride of Karabakh khans’ stables.

The main qualities of Karabakh horses are endurance and loyalty to master. Karabakh horses had been bred in the mountains of Karabakh for many centuries. That is why these horses besides their beauty are valued for endurance and ability to make their way along narrow mountain paths. Horses of Karabakh breed have lean physique and harmonious built.
