Anglo-Karachai Horse

Country of Origin: Russia


This breed is a type of Kabarda horse that is bred specifically in the Karachai republic. These animals tend to be of the most robust type of Kabarda & split off as their own breed during the 1960’s upon the introduction of Thoroughbred blood.


This is a Russian breed originated by crossing English, German & French Thoroughbreds with local Karachai animals. Similar, but not to be confused with the Anglo-Kabarda, the Anglo-Karachi is rarer & generally only found in the mountainous areas of central Asia.

The roots of this breed are heavier than many of the Kabarda types & built for work. The infusion of Thoroughbred blood created a lighter, more suitable riding mount. While their breeding unofficially began in the early 1870’s, it wasn’t until the mid 20th century before the breed was officially recognized.
