Although small (10-12 hands), the Caspian is a horse in every respect. They are most likely the ancestor of the modern day Arabian Horse. And, like their Arabian cousins, they are very athletic, making a great children's show jumper and carriage horse. Because of their small stature, riding of the Caspian should be limited to children and small adults. Caspian's are talented at jumping, and make good small children's hunters. They also make excellent lesson horses for children learning to ride. They are strong for their size, and they are terrific at pulling a cart or small carriage even with an adult driver. They are extremely sure footed on the trail and so make good pleasure horses.
The Caspian is gentle by nature with a kind, energetic disposition, so they also make great pets!
