    9. Appaloosa Horse
    A gentle, friendly breed, the Appaloosa is a spotted horse whose roots go back to the early 1600s. Spanish explorers introduced them to North America and the Nez Perce people, who bred them to create a colorful and intelligent companion. But at one time, this beautiful breed was at risk of being completely lost.

    8. Fresian
    One of the oldest breeds of horses in Europe, the Fresian, whose nickname is the “black pearl” is a stunning animal. Originally from an island off the coast of the Netherlands, they may have been around since 1000 BC, used by both German and Friesian knights who fought in the Crusades. After coming into contact with Eastern horses, their color lightened, and they had better range of movement and improved stamina.

    7. German Forest Horse
    Also known as the Black Forest Draft Horse, this horse is a small but very tough draft breed known for their beauty, and long lifespan. Even though they are tough, this breed is almost extinct. They are about 600 years old, and for most of the time, this breed was used almost exclusively for forestry work because of their immense strength, patience and gentle temperament.

    6. Gypsy Vanner
    Originally bred in England, the Gypsy Horse gets its name from being able to easily pull caravans and is said to be popular among the Romani people. Also known as the Irish Cob, it was not even officially recognized as a breed until the 1990’s.

    5. Andalusian
    A pure Spanish horse that originated in the Iberian Peninsula, the Andalusian was first recognized as a breed in the 15th century. They were bred for their agility and were best used in hand-to-hand combat as war horses.

    4. Akhal-Teke
    If you’ve never heard of the Akhal-Teke horse, it’s probably because they are extremely rare. A horse with a coat so shiny, they look almost metallic when the sun hits them right! The Akhal-Teke breed is believed to be at least 3000 years old and bred for their speed, beauty, size and strength.

    3. Haflinger
    Also known by the name Avelignese, the Haflinger horse is descended from an Arabian stallion and a mountain pony from Austria and Northern Italy. In fact, all Haflinger ponies can trace their lineage back to one stallion that was born in 1874.

    2. Rocky Mountain Horse
    Originating in the United States in the late 1800s, the Rocky Mountain Horse breed comes from the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in eastern Kentucky. They were used for everything from working the fields and herding cattle to carrying postmen and doctors.

    1. Icelandic Horse
    It might surprise you to know that in Iceland, a country with a population of only 300,000, there are 80,000 horses. Used for companionship and leisure riding, the Icelandic Horse plays a huge part in the country’s history. Curious and intelligent, this breed first arrived in Iceland aboard Viking ships of the Norse settlers somewhere between 860 and 935 AD.
