[ INDEX ] Equine Type: Horse Breed: Brazilian Pony [ PREV ] [ NEXT ]
The ancestors of the Brazilian Pony are Shetlands that were imported to Brazil to serve as pit ponies. These were crossed with Falabellas to produce a pony which, on average, was shorter than the Shetland.
Today, the Brazilian Pony no longer serves as a pit pony, but instead serves for in-hand shows, and as a mount for children.
The conformation of Brazilian Ponies is characterized by a wide head with a straight or slightly concave profile, a small muzzle, small ears, prominent withers, a short back, a croup that can be lower than the withers, and legs of medium length.
The mane and tail often grow long, and are usually silky, although some ponies have wavy hair.
The following are the: range, average, (SD), and MOE of performance metrics of ordered Brazilian Ponies in Horse Isle (not bred ones). In rare cases,
Speed: 11.7-13.5, 12.5 (0.5), 0.09.
Sprint: 20-40, 29 (6), 1.13.
Accel: 0.96-1.15, 1.05 (0.04), 0.01.
Decel: 0.93-1.07, 1.00 (0.03), 0.01.
Jump: 4.83-5.18, 5.02 (0.07), 0.01.

Stamina: 44.67-51.45, 47.25 (1.36), 0.27.

Coats & Height:
Colors: bay, black, brown, chestnut, gray, and dun.
Additionals: flaxen, linebacked, sooty, leopard, tobiano, dark mane & tail.
Height: 6.2hh and 10.1hh*.
* Brazilian Ponies are not allowed to exceed the height of 10.3hh, but ideally won't exceed 10.1hh (for mares), and 9.1hh (for stallions). Therefore, in Horse Isle, they stand between 6.2hh and 10.1hh. This also means that they are note rideable in Horse Isle.
