The Kathiawari is fairly small and fine featured, light built, but still strong and sturdy horse built much like its Arabian ancestors. They have long backs, sloping shoulders, slender necks and refined faces and a naturally high set tail. Their movement is fairly smooth, as many have the natural ability to pace.

unusual breed of horse that originated in the Kathiawar peninsula
in India. These horses are believed to have been bred in the 14th
century and are descended from native Indian ponies, and Arabian
horses, which are said to have been brought over during the
reign of Muhgal.
