The Arravani is a Greek horse that is in danger of extinction and only about 200-300 of them are left in the world today.
This breed has been influenced by Egyptian Arabians, Medern, Greek Thessaliern, Roman horses and Turkish Arabian bloodlines. This combination created an animal that was comfortable to ride and personable.
For thousands of years they were used as agriculture workers by local farmers and for transporting loads over stony mountain paths.
The introduction of motorized vehicles saw a decline in their use that much of the stock was sold off as meat to Italian suppliers.
