The Tolfetano horse is originally from central Italy, and in particular from Monti della Tolfa, the area between Rome and Viterbo which was once Etruscan.
The breed was already well-known at the time of the Etruscans. It is very hardy, and still bred in the wild. This breed is strong, well-built and tough.
Once used as a pack-horse and for rounding up cattle, it is now normally used for riding in the countryside, or raised for meat on pasturage unsuitable for cattle.
Height at the withers: 150 - 160 cm
