The Calabrese, or Calabrian, comes from the Calabra region of Italy and is of great antiquity. Its existence in this area predates the establishment of Rome; afterward it was one of the most sought-after horses in the Empire. Arabian and Turkmoman are known to be in his ancestry, and the Calabrese and Andalusian no doubt influenced each other many times over the centuries. The Calabrese is naturally tall and hunter-like in proportions and temperament, and not without a dash of fire. Extremely rare today, the Calabrese is most often the usual shades of bay, brown, chestnut and grey, but any color can occur. This breed stands around 16-17hh.
