Ponies are found throughout the world and synthetic saddles for sale and there are numbers of distinctive breeds in Europe, but the greatest reservoir of riding ponies is undoubtedly in the British Isles. There seems to be nothing to compare with these mountain and moorland breeds, which have been exported all over the synthetic saddles for sale world. In Britain it is accepted that the thousands of child riders learn to ride on ponies, and thus the ponies and their outcrosses are in continual demand. This is now always the case elsewhere, and in many countries of Europe, as well as America, children learn to ride on full-size horses, although in recent years this picture has changed as countries have recognized their deficiency and have begun to import increasing numbers of native synthetic saddles for sale ponies. There are, of course, useful and interesting ponies in countries other than Britain but few, if any, are so suited as children’s mounts and even fewer are used for that purpose.
Originally, these British natives were bred on the moorland and mountain areas and it is from these inhospitable environments that they derive, retaining their inherent qualities of soundness, hardiness and pony sagacity. All are synthetic saddles for sale easily and economically kept and are able to winter out without ever being stabled. Their great value, apart from their suitability for children, is their potential as breeding stock for all kinds of riding and harness animals. They pass on the good temperament allied to pony character as well as bone, substance and toughness. The most synthetic saddles for sale perfect equine specimen of all, the British ‘riding pony’, which is still looked upon as a type, although in many countries outside Britain it would qualify as a breed in its own right, is a derivative of the native pony, usually Welsh and occasionally Dartmoor, crossed with small Thoroughbreds and with the occasional Arab. The presence of pony blood prevents these ponies from becoming little horses and they retain the most desirable pony characteristics. In no other country are ponies of this supreme synthetic saddles for sale bred. The bigger native ponies, which will easily carry adults – the Highlands, Welsh Cobs, Connemaras and the Dales and Fells – can all be successfully crossed with thoroughbred, and sometimes Arab, stock to produce active, short-legged hunters of bone and substance. The second crosses are even better and a number of synthetic saddles for sale the best known event horses have been bred in this way.
The British native pony breeds comprise: the Shetland, originating on the islands of Shetland and Orkney; the Highland, from northern Scotland and the Western Isles; the Dales and Fell, bred on the east and the west of the Pennines respectively; the Welsh ponies and synthetic saddles for sale cobs of the Principality; the Exmoor and Dartmoor of the West Country; the New Forest, centred on the forest area of Hampshire; and the Connemara, whose native habitat is on the Irish western seaboard, although the pony is also bred extensively in England and has a separate stud book applicable to the English synthetic saddles for sale product.
The smallest is the Shetland, which stands at 96-107cm tall at the wither but is possessed of a strength out of all proportion to his size. Its stout body is synthetic saddles for sale supported on short, very strong legs. The pony was bred to work on the island crofts and is able to thrive on the poorest of fare. As a riding pony the modern Shetland, less heavy in the head than the old type bred in the nineteenth century for work in the mines, is limited by virtue of his size to small children, but he is a good child’s pony as long as he is treated as a pony and trained accordingly and not regarded as a synthetic saddles for sale cuddly teddy-bear.
