Made in Italy!

Good morning,
First of all sorry for my bad English, but I'm Italian....
I'm new in this nice forum...
I want to speak about the italian breeds: murgese, maremmano, avelignese (more well-know like Haflinger), sanfratellano, Italian Heavy Draft Horse (in Italian "tiro pesante rapido"), tolfetano, bardigiano, Anglo-Arabo Sardo,...
In short, all breeds unknown!



For every curiosity, feel free to ask!

Oh wow I have never actually heard of any of those breeds.
Do you own any of the breeds your self?

No, unfortunately I haven't got a horse.
But I rode haflingers, some "maremmani", many "sella italiani", an "anglo arabo Sardo" and I saw also murgesi, sanfratellani, Tiro Pesante Rapido,....

Italian horses

I'm in Italy as well (although I'm Danish). To the collection of Italian horses there is also the "Cavallo del Catria" (-> Horse from Mount Catria).

Italy has many nice horse breeds, I personally like the Murgese a lot, it comes in a very nice black color.

Are you in Italy now? Wow! Where?
I love Murgese, too!

There are other breeds in Italy, like "Cavallo del Pentro", "Cavallo del Ventasso", "Cavallo Calabrese", "Persano", "Pony di Esperia", "Pony di Monterufoli", "Pony della Giara"; but these are very rare!

That is a comprehensive list about Italian horse:

Yes, I also found a list on Istruzione Agraria on line. Well, some are very rare but then there is the Haflinger which is world known.

I live in Le Marche in a not very horse friendly area (too steep hills), what about you?

Yes, Haflinger is the most famous Italian breed!
