Tori - horses for sale
Originating in the Baltic nation of Estonia, the Tori Horse, or Toric, has developed through selective breeding into a sturdy, practical all-rounder that is easy to keep. Because they are rare outside their homeland, deciding to buy a Tori is an unusual choice. However, their proven abilities in harness will appeal to many purchasers looking for strength and docility in a compact-sized horse. The most likely people to sell a Tori are specialists, including the principal studs in Estonia itself. Today, Estonians are justifiably proud of the breed they have produced, and it is part of the national heritage that draws visitors to the country. The modern Tori is becoming more of a sporty all-round horse, though devotees of the traditional or 'old' Tori are very keen to ensure its survival.

Use and characteristics of the Tori Horse
The Tori Horse is primarily a light draught and harness horse that has always been popular as a farm horse in Estonia and the surrounding countries. Handsome, strong and gentle, Tori horses get their draught horse power from their muscular necks, which develop into a strong crest in stallions of the breed. It was accepted practise in parts of Ukraine, Russia and other nearby countries to buy a Tori Horse stallion to improve the local stock. Their legs are clean and fine, giving them an elegant appearance along with their strength, and their gaits are smooth and active. They are in fact stunningly attractive horses with rich coats of chestnut or dark brown, often with lighter coloured manes and tails for contrast. The breed varies from 15 hands high (60 inches/152 cm) to 15.2 hands high (62 inches/157cm), with some stallions reaching 16 hands high (64 inches/162 cm).
