The New Forest Pony ... a true all-rounder!
Intelligence, strength, calm temperament and versatility.
The most endearing quality of The New Forest pony is their inbred, gentle nature. Their calm temperament naturally recommends them as an excellent choice and an ideal mount for both children and adults. They have long been raced locally and are surprisingly fast, especially over rough terrain. They are suited to many competitive activities from Pony Club to polo, driving to dressage.Tthey are naturals at jumping and gymkhana and are successfully trained to carry handicapped riders.
All in all, the modern New Forest Pony is an exceptional all-rounder with an endearing character, that has developed as a result of both its unique environment and strong association with the people who have been responsible for the development of the breed.
