Which breed of horse is consided to be the oldest and purest?

Well technically the Przewalski's horse is the oldest and purest of the wild horses, in fact it's the only truly wild breed of horse in the world. However there are three real contenders for oldest and purest of the domestic horse breeds. These would be the Caspian, the Akhal-Teke, and the Arabian. Recent research however shows that the Arabian is actually a cross between the Caspian and the Akhal-Teke as it has blood markers for both of these two breeds, but Caspian and Akhal-Teke lack markers for Arabian blood. The research into this is fairly new and not well publicised and the Arabian Horse Association maintains it's belief that the Arabian is the oldest and purest breed.
