Lil Dude Pony Saddle. We bring you the "Finest Youth Saddles Made". A pony is any of several different horse breeds with a specific conformation and temperament. By definition, ponies measure less or equal to 14.2 hands high (hh) (1.47 meters) at the withers, where one hand is equal to approximately four inches. However, the term "pony" can be used in general (or affectionately) for any small horse, regardless of its actual size or breed.
Compared to horses, ponies often exhibit thicker manes, tails and overall coat, as well as proportionally shorter legs, wider barrels, heavy bone, thick necks, and short heads with broad foreheads.
For showing purposes, ponies are often grouped into small, medium, and large sizes. Small ponies are 12.2 hh and under, medium ponies are over 12.2 but no taller than 13.2 hh (1.27 to 1.37 m), and large ponies are over 13.2 hh but no taller than 14.2 hh (1.37 to 1.47 m).
The pony originated from original wild horse prototypes that developed small stature due to living on the margins of livable horse habitat. These smaller animals were domesticated and bred for various purposes, especially in Britain and Ireland. Ponies were historically used as "pit ponies" hauling loads of coal up from the mines, for driving and freight transport, as children's mounts, for recreational riding, and later as competitors and performers in their own right. Larger ponies can be ridden by adults, as ponies are usually very strong.
