Shagya Arabian - horses for sale
The Shagya Arabian is a popular breed of European origin that has special status within the World Arabian Horse Organisation. Founded in the days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, horses of many diverse types were used to create the Shagya Arabian. However, it takes its name from a Syrian Arabian stallion, Shagya, who was born in 1830. The descendants of this influential sire tend to be taller than other Arabians, and this additional height is an asset for riders who buy a Shagya Arabian. Today breeders and trainers can sell a Shagya Arabian to participate in any equestrian activity as these versatile horses do well in every sphere, from carriage driving to endurance riding.

Standing mostly between 15 hands (60 inches/152 cm) and 16 hands (64 inches/163 cm) high, the modern Shagya Arabian is not only taller but also stronger than the purebred Arabian.

Their qualities of endurance and courage make them a good choice for distance riding. They make very attractive harness horses, too. Trainers who sell a Shagya Arabian for carriage driving always find plenty of interest from enthusiasts. Grey is one of the most popular coat colours.
