The Caspian horse is a small very elegant, tough, and sensible horse. The isolated and rough environment they lived in for the last 5000 years, gave them characteristics which are unique for this breed. Scientific research has found proof that the Caspian horse is an ancestor of all high blooded horses in the world and the oldest breed. After being "lost" for 1000 years Mrs Firouz rediscovered them in 1965 in North Iran.
