Only about 3,000 individuals of this breed exist, and at present there is no breed association or stud book for them.


The Cukurova horse was developed in Turkey by crossing Uzunyayla and Turkish Arabians, then crossing them with native Turkish Anadolu ponies. The Cukurova is a handsome, spirited animal and larger than the Anadolu.
