Basic History: These horses derived from the breeding of Kabarda and Thoroughbred horses together in the regions of Caucasus, Russia. In the cross, the Kabarda had to be a mare, and the Thoroughbred had to be a stallion. The goal of the Russians was to obtain horses with the speed and size of a Thoroughbred, but they also wanted horses that had good endurance and adaptability, such as the Kabarda. They were used as cavalry mounts and as farm and riding horses. The people initially raised these horses in large herds and developed in them.
Habitat: Because of this horse's adaptability, it can live almost anywhere. This horse has good endurance, so they can live in rocky and hot climates where the environment demands a lot from a horse.
