As follows from this message, the Adyghe horses were slightly higher in growth in comparison with the horses of other highlanders. The rather large similarity of the descriptions of the horses of the mountain peoples of the North Caucasus, which is observed in written sources, probably indicates their common origin.

General description of the breed

The Spaniards have long ranked their horses as Pura Raza Espanola (Pure Spanish Horse or PRE), and also have a studbook.

One of the most plausible versions of the appearance of the breed among the three well-known is recognized as such. When Muslims invaded the territory of Spain with their stallions in 711, there were domestic horses that looked like Portuguese sorai ponies. Continue reading
