RIDING PONIES AT STUD
The Riding Pony is one of the few examples of a planned exercise to breed a type for a particular purpose. It cannot be considered in genetic terms a breed but rather a refined type. The Riding Pony is a combination of various pony breeds with Thoroughbred and Arab, bred to produce the ultimate pony to perform in show riding classes. The end result aimed for is a animal which can go out into the show ring and exhibit all the characteristics in type, movement and temperament that defines a show pony. The maximum height for a Riding Pony is 14.2 hands.
