About Karabakh Horse

Our Karabakh has made a noise to the world not only with its culture, art and nature, but also with its horses. Karabakh horses are considered the oldest horse breed in Asia and the Caucasus. There are 4 types of Karabakh horses: Maymun, Garnyirtig, Alyetmez (Ceyran) and Toxmaq. They are distinguished by their high speed. The Karabakh horse is tall and nimble, has a strong body structure. The "golden age" of Karabakh equestrianism is considered to be the 18th-19th centuries. It was during this period that the most typical examples of the breed were bred in the factories of Karabakh Khans Panah Khan, Ibrahim Khan, Mehdigulu Khan, Jafargulu Khan and Khurshidbanu Natevan (Usmiyevs).
