[ INDEX ] Equine Type: Horse Breed: Java Pony (Java) [ PREV ] [ NEXT ]
The ancestors of the Java Pony are Mongolian, Chinese, and additional Asian horses that were brought to Indonesia. The result was a small pony who has exceptional stamina and enough strength to serve as a riding and pack pony in the hot tropical climate of Indonesia.
Today, the Java Pony is popular in Indonesia, where it serves for pulling carts, as a mount for children, and in various traditional parades. In addition, Java Ponies are sometimes crossed with Arabian horses to form the Priangan (see the 'Priangan' for more information.)
Java Ponies have a head which can be somewhat large and heavy, the profile is straight, the ears are rather long, the neck is short and muscular, the withers are prominent, the back is visibly long, the croup is slightly sloping, and the legs are long and muscular.
The mane is short or medium in length, and can be silky or coarse, and be upright or fall flat on the side of the neck.
