The Tersk horse breed was founded in Ukraine. They were first referred to as the Streletsky breed derived sometime during the nineteenth century. They are at times also referred to as the Tersky horse and have been most commonly perceived as a breed that was mounted for military purposes. During those times, the Anglo and Arab horses were utilized for mares in Orlov, Persian, and Karabakh styles. By the time the twentieth century came about, the Streletsky breed was suffering from a massive decrease in popularity. There were two variations that survived this time frame: the Tsilindr and the Tsenitel. Some of the mares turned up after this as well, such as the Kabardian and the Don in which the Arab blood began to take shape in the breeding process. In the early nineteen hundreds, around 1925, a brand new breed had formed. They were noted to be found in the Tersk Stud and that became the new name from there on. One can explore the areas where the Tersk breed can be found in Georgia, Turkey, Armenia, around the Russian Federation, and along the Black Sea.
