World’s Top Persian Horse Breeds


The tale goes that the Persian horses descending from the tarpan were known as a breed long centuries before Christ. There is a theory that may be liberally discussed that Persian horses were ancestors of the Arabs, which finds a great justification in the looks and many characteristics common to both breeds. We may safely say that the Persian horse was a typical oriental horse of great beauty, full of quality, high-spirited, speedy, and courageous, making an excellent warhorse, much appreciated by Islamic warriors.

Today there are many different breeds in Persia: Persian Arab, the Turkoman horse, Shirazi horse (the Gulf Arab), the Kurdistan pony, the Karabagh, the Bokhara pony, the Yamoote, and some Russian breeds such as Orlov Trotters, etc.
