Italys unique horses reflect mankind’s developments and accomplishments across centuries.
Did you know that Europe has the highest proportion of critically endangered horse breeds in the world?
Many of these rare horses are from Italy. If these horses disappear (like the Neapolitan horse) due to changes in fashion and rapid agricultural development, so do hundreds of years of work and sacrifice.
I collaborate with www.thepixelnomad.com on helping document rare breeds. Check out her Forgotton Horses website. It is fascinating stuff.
Below are a few breeds we have documented. More to come in 2021!
