The Iomud (also spelled Yamud and Yomud) is a rare light saddle breed from Turkmenistan. It is named after the Iomud tribe wich created it.

Origins and subtypes:
The Iomud was created over 600 years ago, during the 14th century, by the Iomud people who crossed local Turkmen horses with Arabian horses to generate a light saddle horse that is stronger than the Turkmen.

Over the centuries, three subtypes of the Iomud were created: the first subtype is the purebred form of the Iomud breed; the second subtype was created by crossing Iomuds with Thoroughbreds, and is larger than the pure Iomud; the third subtype was created by crossing Iomuds with Mongolian and Kazakh horses, and is shorter and stockier than the Iomud.

The pure Iomud:
Pure Iomud horses are slender and slim horses, but they are stronger than what they look. They also inherited the exceptional endurance of their ancestors, and therefore served as excellent horses for crossing the arid landscapes of Turkmenistan.

During the 20th century, the number of pure Iomud horses declined. Starting from the 1980s several breeding farms were established in Turkmenistan to conserve this pure form of the breed.

The Iomud today:
Today, the Iomud is back to being a common horse in Turkmenistan and Iran, although not much is known about it.

Similar to other Oriental hotblood breeds, Iomud horses have an overall light and slender build. The head is slender and its profile is either straight or slightly convex, the neck is long and slender, the withers are a tad prominent, the croup has a light slope, and the legs are slender.

The hair of the mane and tail is thin, and while the tail can grow long the mane is short in length.
