[ INDEX ] Equine Type: Horse Breed: Altai [ PREV ] [ NEXT ]
For centuries, Altai horses were bred for their hardiness and ability to travel and survive in the local mountains. As such, they are locally known for their endurance, surefootedness, and their ability to live outdoors all-year-round. Altai horses serve as pack and riding horses.
Starting from the 20th century, breeders crossed Altai horses with larger Russian breeds, in order to increase the height of the Altai horse. Nevertheless, the Altai remains smaller in today's terms, averaging at 13.2-13.3hh. Today, many Altai horses are still being crossed with larger breeds, but some are bred in a strictly pure manner, which is why in Horse Isle this breed has a closed studbook.
When it comes to their conformation, Altai horses have a large yet light head with small eyes and a straight or slightly dished profile, a short and thick neck, a long back which can be concave, a muscular sloping croup, and short legs. The combination of long back with short legs can give the Altai a noticeably long, rectangular frame.
