Country of origin: Pakistan
Horse (Equus ferus caballus)

The Baluchi horse is a breed of horse native to the Baluchistan, Sindh and Punjab Provinces in Pakistan.[1]


The Baluchi horse is usually bay, chestnut, or gray. They are light in build and generally have a fine head, long neck, strong but fine legs and ears that curve in so the tips of the ears touch. The Baluchi somewhat resembles the Indian Kathiawari breed. They are also thought to be related to the Barb through the Malian breed known as the Beledougou or Banamba.[1]


They are used for riding and light draft work.[1]
