[ INDEX ] Equine Type: Horse Breed: Chumbivilcas (Chumbi)   [ PREV ] [ NEXT ]
The Chumbivilcas is a subtype of the Andean, that is bred in the Cuzco and Apurimac regions. It is taller, stronger, and more agile on average that the other two Andean subtypes, which is why the Peruvian army preferred to use it as a cavalry horse over the other subtypes. Today, though, it is mainly used for transportation in the Andes Mountains.

Chumbivilcas horses are usually bay or gray in color, but can also come in the colors of black, brown, and chestnut, and, more rarely, dun, and roan. The coat is solid, often dark, and can be mealy to a limited extent. Last, while dark hooves are preferable, leg markings do occur. Chumbivilcas horses stand between 14hh and 14.2hh.
