Calabrese or Calabrian

The Calabrese comes from Calabria Southern Italy and Sicily, bred from an original group of horses imported from North Africa. During the 19th century the breed was a famous riding horse, but since then large amounts of Salernitano and English Purosangue blood has been introduced and the exemplary pureness of the breed is much reduced. Today the breed is recognised as a good jumper.

The Calabrese stands between 15.3hh and 16.1hh (160cm to 165cm); the head is refined with a straight nose well shaped ears and intelligent eyes; the neck is slightly arched with a good length of reign; the shoulder is long and sloping; the back is sturdy; the hind quarters are round and well muscled. The limbs are strong, muscular and regular with wide hooves.
All solid colours are permissable.

This is a breed with a gentle temperament, which is easy to train, but it has active and lively paces.
