Welcome to the new and improved breeds section, have a look around and meet a breed or two.

Jabe Horse

Country of Origin: Kazakhstan



Also called the Dzhabe, the Jabe is a specific type within the Kazakh breed, different because of their massive size. They have been traditionally bred by local people due to their highly adaptable nature.


These animals come from Kazakhstan and are well known for their ability to thrive in almost any environment, from extreme heat to extreme cold. Their bloodlines date back to 400 BC and over the years they have been used to improve a number of Russian breeds.

Since the 1960’s there has been a fairly rigorous breeding program in place with the intention of creating a large animal with a meaty frame. They have been successful and the breed has gotten continuously larger during the latter part of the 20th century.

3 Types

There are three different recognized strains within the Jabe breed.

Emben – The most desired type
Betpakdalin – created by crossing with mares of the Dzezkazgan region
Kulandin – was produced at the Kulandin stud farm by crossing with Adev mares.

The result of these three different types is an adaptable breed whose bloodlines can be altered to adapt to specific regions.
