The British Riding Pony is a sport pony breed, that serves as a mount for children who want to compete in equestrian sports.

Origins:
The development of British Riding Ponies began in 1893, by breeders who crossed native British ponies with small Thoroughbreds and Arabians.

The original aim of the breeding program was to develop the ultimate polo pony for children, but after the turn of the century it changed into developing the ideal pony for show-jumping, dressage, eventing, and similar competitive disciplines.

The British Riding Pony today:
Even though that the British Riding Pony is still being developed, the breed has become popular among young riders, especially in the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand. It serves as a mount for children who wish to compete in show-jumping, dressage, and eventing.

Breeding British Riding Ponies:
The popularity of the British Riding Pony means that are plenty of ponies to form a sizeable studbook, and therefore British Riding Ponies generally are bred in a pure manner. This is reflected in the breeding rules of British Riding Ponies in Horse Isle.

In addition, although ponies with one Arabian or Thoroughbred parent and one Native British Pony parent (e.g. Welsh, Dartmoor, Exmoor, New Forest, etc.) are also eligible for registration, in Horse Isle such crosses are not recommended, as they will result in a non-pure foal or a pony whose conformation is off.

Conformation:
The breed standard for British Riding Ponies lists three conformation categories. In Horse Isle, the conformation of the British Riding Pony was created according to the standard for British Riding Show Ponies.

As such, British Riding Ponies in Horse Isle have small heads with slightly dished profiles, small ears, large eyes, long and arched necks, prominent withers, backs of medium length, relatively long legs compared to other pony breeds, and an overall athletic build.

The hair of the mane and tail is straight and slightly thin, with a mane that is short of medium in length but a tail that grows long.
