Baluchi – Rare Horse Breed of the Week

Rare Horse Breed of the WeekToday’s rare breed for Monday comes from Pakistan, the Baluchi Horse & they are among the more rare of the bunch. While their type may not be rare, a constant influx of outside blood has left their pureblood numbers almost extinct.

Riding Mount Lineage

Thought to be of Barb descent, this breed is known for its strength, endurance & their fine confirmation. They are used for light riding & pulling tongas. Similar to the Marwari & Kathiawari breeds of India, their ears grow deeply turned in.

A lack of structured breeding programs has left the Baluchi with very little pure blood left in their veins, making this a dangerously rare breed.

Difficult to Measure

To lay your eyes on a pureblood Baluchi horse (especially outside of Pakistan or India) would be a difficult task indeed. This breed could effectively be extinct in its pure form, making them super dangerously rare.

    It’s conFORmation, NOT conFIRmation. You “confirm” you airline flight…the way something is built (a horse, for example) is the way it is “conformed.” Using incorrect terminology lessens your credibility as a horse person, since knowing about “conformation” is pretty basic.
    Rant over…
