[ INDEX ] Equine Type: Horse Breed: Canik [ PREV ] [ NEXT ]
The Canik was created many centuries ago in northern Turkey. It was kept purebred until the 19th century, when it was crossed with Caucasus cavalry horses.
Canik horses are energetic horses who tend to have a nervous and stubborn temper, and therefore can be difficult to ride. Nevertheless, they are surefooted and know how to walk safely in steep mountainous terrains. In addition, because Canik horses are gaited, they make good mounts for experienced riders who want to cross hilly terrains.
In terms of appearance, Canik horses have a skinny and angular build, except for their legs which compared to their overall look can appear thick. In addition, they have large and strong hooves that are suitable for walking over hilly terrains. Last, Caniks often have long and wavy manes and tails.
