The Caspian, an ancient Central Asian breed once coveted by Persian Kings, is making a comeback from the brink of near extinction.
Caspians are highly intelligent and alert, yet they maintain a great deal of tractability and have a strong interest in bonding with humans - all without losing the prized spirit of a hot-blooded breed.
The overall impression of a Caspian should be one of elegance, grace, fluidity, and nobility. Averaging 11 - 12.2 hands, a Caspian is kind enough to be a child's first pony, and talented and flashy enough to be a top competitor in the dressage ring or on the hunter/jumper A-circuit.
That same agility and classy look makes the Caspian an able competitor in pole bending, barrels and other gymkhana activities. They are a standout for 4-H halter and performance, and can just as easily be enjoyed by youth for trail riding for as they can for adults in competitive driving where speed, stamina, and agility count.
