Black Sea Horse
Also called the Chernomor, the Black Sea Horse is very rare and only a small number of pure blood still exist.
Native to the coastal areas of the Krasnodar region of Russia, the development of the Black Sea Horse began at the end of the 18th century.
They are of saddle type and carry Arabian, Nogai, Kabarda (among other mountain breeds), Don and Thoroughbred blood. Throughout the years a great deal of bloodline dilution has occurred in the hopes of strengthening the breed.
Almost extinct in pure form and the stock has been absorbed into some of the other local breeds.
