Sella Italiano


Sella Italiano is an equine breed created in Italy. The Italian Government has passed a law that created a stud book for the new breed. The breed is blending the remnant indigenous Italian breeds of Maremmano, Salernitano and Persano horse with Anglo Arabo Sardo, Purosangue Orientale, Arabian and Thoroughbred. The progeny of said horses can be registered as Sella Italiano if they can pass a “performance test”. Furthermore the stud book is open to other European warmbloods if they can pass the performance test and be approved by the breed registry. The breed is intended to produce a sport horse which can compete successfully at the international level.

The minimum height for the breed at the withers is set at 15.2 hands (62 inches, 157 cm)
