The Newfoundland Pony has long been a proud part of Newfoundland culture and history.
Early settlers brought from the British Isles Exmoor, Dartmoor, New Forest, Galloway, Welsh, Connemara and the odd Highlands ponies.
These ponies, for nearly three centuries, interbred until one common pony developed “The Newfoundland Pony”.
Colour: commonly brownish in colour though other colours are not uncommon.
Height: between 11 and 14.2hh.
Conformation: small head with deep jowls, short hairy ears, small flint hard hoofs, low set tail.
Character: good temperament
