The above-mentioned are some of the main characteristics of Torkaman horses.
Torkaman horse is one of the purest kinds of the horse in the whole world and is of such a high genetical value that its export to other countries is strictly forbidden. Torkaman horses are mostly bred and raised for horse-riding competitions and are seldom used for transportation, cargo-move, or agricultural activities. In Torkaman Sahra, there are three vast horse-race fields for holding professional horse-riding matches in them from among which the horse-race field of Gonbad has got international fame and, for this reason, this city has won the title of the capital of horse-race in the entire Middle East. Holding horse-riding matches is one of the powerful attractions that drag many people to Golestan, and specially Gonbad city, out of their passion for witnessing the matches, making bets on the horses, taking photos with them and experiencing horse-riding activities.
So to speak, the hoofprint of Torkaman horse can be traced back in history. It is said that in the Iranian and non-Iranian great empires, Torkaman horses were used for the cavalry. Bucephalus, the horse of alexander, and Napoleon’s world-conqueror were some of the most significant samples of Torkaman horses.
