Black Horses are a striking and mysterious breed known for their dark, glossy coat. This coat color is highly sought after and can range from a shiny, jet black to a slightly lighter shade with hints of brown or blue. These horses are known for their athleticism and versatility, as well as their strong personalities. Black Horses have been used in a variety of disciplines, from dressage and show jumping to ranch work and film production.

Black Horses for sale on ehorses

There’s something almost magical about black horses, and, like black cats, a certain mythology has developed around them. Perhaps it’s because so many famous fictional horses are black, or perhaps it’s simply that many people believe a black horse has mystery and depth. Black is simply one of the base coat colors in horses, so it is found in many breeds and types. It is often said, though, that a true black horse is hard to find, as some reveal themselves to be very dark brown when viewed up close. In many countries, black horses are extremely popular for state and ceremonial work and there is usually a greater demand than supply.

Characteristics of Black Horses

There is something special about black horses, and it’s got to do with their genetic make-up. Black, like red, is one of the base colors, and it is the action of other genes on the black foundation coat that produces bay, which in turn produces buckskin when influenced by the cream gene. This is also why bay and buckskin horses have black spots (black manes, tails and lower legs), which is part of their appeal. Black is also the base coat for some Paint Horses, Appaloosas and roan horses. In other words, without the black base coat, we would neither have some of the other stunning colors and nor could black and white markings be found in horses and ponies.

Exterior of Black Horses

The most obvious characteristic of the Black Horse is, of course, its dark coat. This coat can range from a shiny, jet black to a slightly lighter shade with hints of brown or blue. Black Horses often have a sleek and muscular build, with long, flowing manes and tails. Some may have white markings on their faces or legs, which only serve to emphasize the striking contrast with their dark coat. Black Horses have a regal and elegant appearance that makes them stand out in any setting.

History of Black Horses

Black Horses have been admired and revered for centuries, with a rich history that spans the globe. The breed has been associated with royalty and nobility throughout history, and has been used for a wide range of activities, including warfare, agriculture, and transportation. In the United States, Black Horses have played a key role in ranching and agriculture, as well as in the film industry. Today, Black Horses can be found in a variety of disciplines, from dressage and show jumping to ranch work and pleasure riding.

Black Horses: The Best Breeds for this Color

Many breeds are known for their all-black horses. Friesians, with their full, flowing manes and tails and proud head carriage, are much in demand for TV and film work. Fell Ponies and Dales Ponies are also mostly black, although unlike the Friesians, which are always this color, they have other coat colors, including bay, gray and roan. Historically, some breeds have been named after their coloring, including the Old English Black, an ancestor of the Shire, and the Black Cart Horse of the Cotentin; a French breed. The Mérens Pony of the Pyrenees and the Murgese horse of Apulia are two other lovely all-black breeds. Black is a desirable coat color in many American breeds, including the American Saddlebred, the Quarter Horse, the Tennessee Walking Horse and the American Morgan Horse. The Iberian breeds also include many black horses; the Menorquin only ever has this color. One interesting aspect of black coloring is that some ponies and horses, including breeds as diverse as the Eriskay pony and the Lippizaner, are born with black coats and lighten as they age.

Famous Black Horses

Many black horses have enchanted people over the centuries! They are frequently associated with rulers and warlike leaders. Alexander the Great’s horse, the famous Bucephalus, was said to have been a black horse with a white mark shaped like an ox-head on his forehead. Some reports describe it as the ox-head brand, the mark of a noble horse. The best-known horse in fiction, Black Beauty, tells his own story in Anna Sewell’s famous book, which has sold millions of copies. He describes himself as black, with a white star and one white foot. He may have been fictional, but his story was also influential in ensuring better conditions for working horses. Walter Farley’s books about a wild black stallion and the boy who befriends him have also captured many people’s hearts. Black horses have cast a spell over people in real life, too. One of the most influential horses in American horse breeding was Black Hawk, a grandson of Justin Morgan. For many years, Queen Elizabeth II regularly rode Burmese, a black mare given to her by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, for the ceremony of the Trooping of the Colour. Both the Mounties and the Household Cavalry only use black horses, apart from the horses that carry the drums for the Household Cavalry Band. Today, the Queen still favors a black horse, or rather a pony, for her regular rides in Windsor Park. Somewhat smaller than Burmese, but just as regal, Fell Pony Carltonlima Emma carries out her duties as the Queen’s favorite equine companion with impeccable manners.
