Nobility, bravery, endurance, purity, and of course, beauty are the features that describe Iranian Turkmen horses.
Many locals believe that breeding such horses is one of the toughest jobs in the world.
Iran and Turkmenistan have recently put forward the Turkmen horses as a candidate for inclusion in UNESCO’S list for Intangible Cultural Heritage.
Khorasan and Golestan Provinces are the core locations to find Persian Turkmen horses. These are the cities with the most purebred classes of this kind.
However, Gonbad-e Kavus and Jargalan are the two counties of Iran where you can meet the main breeders of the industry.
