The Yomut horse was bred by the Turkmen’s tribe Yomut in the western Turkmenistan and in the valley of the river Atrek. These two areas are separated from each other by the Kara-Kum desert.

The Yomut horse is somewhat smaller than the Achaltekin, in the withers averaging 150 to 152 cm (14’3 to 15 hands), otherwise from the central Asian horses resembles the most in color and exterior the Achaltekin horse.

The Yomut is a very fast riding horse that is often crossbred with the Kirgiz horses to improve the endurance qualities. He also serves as the “corrector” of other Mongolian breeds.
