Altai horse

The Altai is a horse breed developed in the Altai Mountains of Central Asia.

Characteristics:

The Altai has a head with a slightly dished profile, set on a relatively short neck. They have a strong back, a well-developed croup, and short cannon bones. They stand an average of 13.2 – 13.3 hands high, and their coat colors are chestnut, bay, black, gray.

Crossing Altais with other breeds usually results in larger, stronger horses that still retain the healthiness and easy management of the Altai. In the past, the Altai has been crossed with Lithuanian, Russian, and Soviet Heavy Draft horses.
