Tersk - horses for sale
The Tersk horse, also known as the Terskaya or Tersky, is a Russian breed of light riding horse that was created from the 1920s onward. The breed was accepted in 1948, making it a relatively recent addition to the riding horses of Russia. Tersks are very arresting in appearance, especially those with coats of either a silver or a golden lustre. This breed is famous for its feats of endurance and this capacity as a distance horse is the main reason riders buy a Tersk today. There is often international interest when breeders or equestrians sell a Tersk, as the breed is now endangered. They are intelligent, versatile horses that also participate successfully in other equestrian disciplines and are popular in Russian circuses!

Use and characteristics of the Tersk
Tersks measure between 14.3 hands (63 inches/160 cm) and 15.1 hands (65 inches/165 inches) in height. Somewhat similar to Arab horses in appearance, they are generally taller and more robust. They have long, well-set shoulders, long legs and good feet; points which are a definite advantage for equestrians who buy a Tersk for endurance riding. Their movements are light and graceful. They are also intelligent and very amiable horses, which makes them easy to train. They are rightly considered to be very beautiful horses by the breeders, trainers and riders who sell a Tersk locally or internationally. Most are grey, often with a silver sheen, though there are golden bays and chestnuts too.
