The Azerbaijan, Azerbaijani: Azərbaycan atı, is an Azerbaijani breed or group of breeds of riding horse of Oriental type.[2]: 440  In 2007 it was listed by the FAO as endangered;[1]: 7  in 2021 it was not among the horse breeds reported to DAD-IS.[3]

Four strains or types of Azerbaijani are recognised as distinct breeds: the Deliboz,[4]: 292 [5] the Guba,[6]: 292 [7] the Shirvan[8] and the Lesser Caucasus.[1]: 7 [9]: 4 [10] The Karabakh may also be included in this group.[11]

In 2007 there were just under 70 000 horses in Azerbaijan; 14–16% of those were Deliboz, while the other three strains or breeds constituted 8–10% of the total; 20–22% were of the Karabakh breed.[9]: 4
