[ INDEX ] Equine Type: Horse Breed: Peneia Pony (Peneia) [ PREV ] [ NEXT ]
The Peneia was created in ancient times, in the Peloponnesus region in Southern Greece, when the locals crossed local horses with Arabian horses.
Due to their unconventional conformation, the natural gaits of Peneia Ponies are very uncomfortable, hence they are used primarily for pack and farm work rather than for riding. However, they can be taught to move in a special, comfortable gait, called aravani, which makes them better suited for riding and jumping. Therefore, in Horse Isle, Peneia ponies can be either non-gaited, partially gaited, or full gated.
Peneia Ponies have a unique set of conformational features that rarely appear together in other breeds, such as a thick neck with a boxy head, small and weak-looking hindquarters, and cow-hocked hind-legs.
