The Salerno was originally from Salerno, in Italy. There was no fixed breeding system for these horses until the 1780s. At that time, people began to selectively breed at the Persano Stud. The solid foundation base stock was made up of Neopolitan, Spanish, and Oriental blood. This breed was promoted by King Charles III, who was the King of Naples, and Spain.

The Salerno is a warmblooded horse of the Italian province of Salerno. It resulted from crossbreeding Andalusians and Neopolitans. This horse usually stands 16 to 17 hands high. These horses are usually a solid color of bay, black, or chestnut.
