Amazing Facts About the Pony
- It is often thought the only difference between horses and ponies is size. This is an important distinguisher but other characteristics also separate horses and ponies
- Ponies are generally considered to be 14.2 hands or under. Horses and ponies are measured in ‘hands’ with each ‘hand’ measuring 4 inches. Ponies height is measured at their withers – where their neck and back meet.
- Although size is a key distinguisher, the smallest horse, a Falabella is considered to be a horse rather than a pony despite only reaching 8 hands, or 32 inches!

- Shetland ponies are the strongest of the smaller ponies in spite of their small size.
- Ponies’ temperament also separates them from horses. They are steady and have gentle dispositions as a whole, however each pony will have different characteristics!

- Ponies’ teeth take up more space in their head than their brain! The age of a pony can be best estimated by looking at their teeth.
