Salernitano Description
  The Salernitano is also known as the Salerno. It is a rather large animal that originated in Sicily. They are ideal animals for many equestrian sports. They are athletic animals known for their jumping capabilities and their ability to withstand very hot temperatures. The Salernitano is a breed of horse that is kind and easy-going, yet still high-spirited and energetic. Besides being an excellent mount and sporting horse, the Salernitano is an attractive animal. It has a good depth of shoulder and well-formed legs with good bones and joints. They have fairly good conformation, which is becoming better as the breed becomes more refined. Its head is usually quite light with a straight profile, square forehead, and flared nostrils. Its eyes express it energy. The long neck is pronounced and muscular. The croup is also very muscular. Its back is well-proportioned and has sort loins. The common coat colors for the Salernitanos include bay, chestnut, black and gray.
