The Bashkir horse has a typical exterior of the Mongolian horse, even though there was inbred to him some of the Oriental blood. He is/was bred on the western slopes of the Ural Mountains in the Perm, Oremburg and Samara region and at one time was spread even more to the north. He is somewhat taller and more massive than the Kirgiz horse but has a “Roman nose” head, longer torso and relatively steeper hindquarters. The horse was used similarly as the Kirgiz horses, but because he was more massive he was also used for work in the agriculture. There was established a special state stud farm for the preservation of the Bashkir horse.
