Sanhe Horse


The Sanhe Horse comes from eastern Inner Mongolia at a grassland basin formed by three rivers (Sanhe means ‘three rivers’) in China. They are thought to be among the finest of the breeds developed in China partially because the area is well suited to raising equine.

Horses have been in this area for at least the last thousand years and have been used as war mounts over the centuries. Early in the 20th century a number of Russian breeds were imported and bred to local animals & the result was the Sanhe.
