  • The Unmol Horse is a rare breed of horse from Asia. It is extremely rare and is verging on extinction, if not already extinct. In spite of all the efforts made some years ago by the Army Remount Department to save this breed, it is doubtful that any purebreds are left. Some breeders in the Punjab states have horses referred to as Unmol, but it is believed that today all of them have blood of imported Arabians. The various families of the Unmol breed are known as Harna, Hazziz, Morna, and Sheehan, all of which are referred to as Unmol. Unmol means "priceless" and indicates the great value and preference put upon this breed. The Unmol is described as very strong, elegant, and "shapely", possessing a long mane and tail and compact body. Predominant colour are gray and bay, and stands around 15.1 hands high. Tradition has it that the ancestors of the breed were brought by Alexander the Great when he invaded India. If that is the case the Unmol was originally from Turkmenian blood.
