[ INDEX ] Equine Type: Horse Breed: Messara Pony (Messara) [ PREV ] [ NEXT ]
The Massara is named after the the Messara region where it was created in the 17th century, when Greek breeders crossed local mares with imported Arabian stallions.
Messara Ponies are smart ponies with decent endurance, and a natural and comfortable broken-ambling gait called 'aravani.' They are used for recreational riding.
The influence of their Arabian ancestors is still noticeable in the conformation of Messara Ponies, who often have slender heads, slim necks, and thin legs. That said, Messara Ponies also differ than their Arabian ancestors in that their heads are long, their chests and bodies are narrow, and their hooves are small.
The mane of the Messara is medium in length while the tail is either short or medium.
