The Israeli Local Horse is a horse breed that was created in Israel out of local horses during the 20th century.

Created to be versatile:
Unlike most other horse breeds whose historical background is documented and their breeding is organized and monitored by official registries, the Israeli Local Horse was created by simply mixing horses that were available at the time, without documenting them.

We do know, though, that at first most of these horses were Arabians and Walers, and that at a later stage, Thoroughbreds and Quarter Horses were added into the mix as well. Additional breeds were also used in the fluid breeding process at some point or another.

The lack of documentation is probably because the breeding aim was never to create an 'official' breed, but merely a versatile horse who has enough stamina to cope well with the local climate and who can perform various tasks. These ranged from working in fields and pulling carts to serving as mounts.

The Israeli Local Horse today:
Ever since they were created, Israeli Local Horses were valued for their excellent endurance, speed, and overall versatility. Today they are regarded as all-around horses, and are widely used for Western and English disciplines, as well as for trail riding and recreational riding.

Breeding:
When it comes to breeding, the breeding of Israeli Local Horses is not as restricted nor as regulated as the breeding of other breeds in terms of pure-breeding. It is common to crossbreed Israeli Local Horses with various other breeds, especially with Thoroughbreds, European warmbloods, and Quarter Horses.

That said, in Horse Isle, the breed has a closed studbook. This is in accordance with Horse Isle's policy to give breeds a closed studbook by default, and to 'open' it only if the official, real registry of the breed has an official open studbook policy.

Conformation:
Unlike many other breeds, Israeli Local Horses never had a 'set' conformation standard, and as such they tend to differ in their overall conformation. That said, most Israeli Local Horses have a narrow build, a long head, a short back, and strong legs. In addition, they also tend to have the energetic temper of their Arabian and Thoroughbred ancestors.
