[ INDEX ] Equine Type: Horse Breed: Pryor Mountain Mustang (Pryor)   [ PREV ] [ NEXT ]
The Pryor Mountain Mustang is a rare strain of the Spanish Mustang, which roams the Pryor Mountains in Montana and Wyoming.

Spanish horses were brought to the Americas in the 15th and 16th centuries as part of the Spanish colonization. Over the years, some of these Spanish horses escaped to the wild and found their way to the Pryor Mountains. Others were given to Native American tribes who lived in that area, the most notable of which was the Crow (Apsaalooke) tribe. These two groups of horses are the ancestors of the Pryor Mountain Mustang.

The climate of the mountains shaped the Pryor Mountain Mustangs into tougher and sturdier horses than their Spanish ancestors, though their overall conformation remained similar.

Pryor Mountain Mustangs are usually dun in color, but they can also come in other colors, though they always have primitive markings. Pryor Mountain Mustangs stand mostly between 14hh and 14.2hh, but shorter and taller individuals can be found.
