Also called the Kandachi & Handachine Horse, the Kandachime is a Japanese draft breed that comes from the region of Aomori. They come from a cross between local horses and the blood of Anglo-Arabians, Arabians, Hackney and draft blood like the Belgian & Breton.

There is little information in English on this breed, but from what I can tell pureblood animals no longer exist. Larger animals from Europe & North America were imported to increase size of the animals for the Japanese cavalry.

Do you have images or know more about the Kandachime breed? I’d love help completing this page, please contact me to get involved.
