The Armenian Highlands are renowned for horse breeding. Some of the oldest traces of domestication of horses and the development of the chariot have been found there.
Following the Biblical tradition Armenians are considered to be the descended of Torgom (Togarmah), where the Bible refers to the House of Togarmah, a land known for its horses (Ez. 27:14).
Armenian horsemanship was well known in the ancient world and was often mentioned by classical Greek historians like Xenophon, Strabo and Plutarch.
