The Mogod Pony (also 'Tunisian Pony') is a Tunisian pony breed. It is Tunisia's only native breed, and is named after the Mogod Mountains where it originated.

An African pony for both forests and mountains:
Tunisia is located in Northwest Africa, on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea. While the word 'Africa' might bring images of flat arid deserts into mind, Tunisia's northwest is actually a mountainous region partially covered in forests. It was in this region that the Mogod Pony was born many centuries ago.

How was it born? No one knows for sure. But however and whenever it happened, the Mogod Pony became an essential part of the lives of the tribes that lived in the Mogod Mountains. This little pony could climb the mountains and travel the forests with ease, and the locals used it extensively as pack pony.

The Mogod Pony today:
Today, Mogod Ponies still roam the Mogod Mountains, where the locals use them for both recreational riding and pack work. They are especially known for their strength, agility, and surefootedness, which enable them to navigate tricky terrains while carrying ~100kg load on their back.

Alas, with Arabs, Thoroughbreds, and Barb-Arabs gaining more and more popularity in Tunisia, the Mogod is becoming a rare sight. In order to protect Tunisia's only native breed, a breeding plan was initiated to ensure that the Mogod doesn't suffer too much inbreeding and that its numbers remain stable.

The Mogod Pony has a broad head with a straight profile and large eyes. Its neck and back are short, its croup is slightly sloping, its girth is deep, and its chest is large. The mane is short to medium in length, but the tail can grow long.
