Origins and attitudes
Ancient breed originally from Calabria, derived from a group of Arab horses imported from North Africa. During the Bourbon period it was crossed with the Andalusian which gave it elegance in the movements. In more recent times it has undergone the influence of the English Thoroughbred which has produced the increase in size and of the Salerno area.
In order not to disperse the original characters, we sometimes resort to re-blooding with oriental horses.
