About Batak Pony HorsesAbout Batak Pony Horses



Batak Ponies are from Indonesia originating in CentralrnSumatra. They are thought to have descended from Mongolian and Arabian horses,rnand have continually been infused with additional Arabian blood to improve theirrnquality. They are selectively breed by the Indonesians, and are often used tornupgrade the quality of horses and ponies on nearby islands. The Batak Pony wasrnonce used as a sacrificial animal in religious ceremony.rnrn 

rnrnThey are slender, but still strong and sturdy. They arerngenerally well-conformed. Poor forage is a major contributor to conformationrnabnormalities. The only other breed of the country which is of better qualityrnis the Sandalwood Pony. The ponies have a fine head with a straight or slightlyrnconvex profile. The neck is short and thin, the withers are prominent. Thernchest and frame are narrow, the back is usually long, and the quarters sloping.rnThe tail is set and carried quite high. The Batak pony is considered a veryrnwilling breed, and is quite hardy. They are easy keepers. They usually averagernabout 11.3 hh but may stand up to 13 hands, and are generally brown, but can bernany color. The Arabian blood makes it spirited when needed, but the pony is generallyrnquiet enough for children to ride, with an excellent temperament. Their speedrnalso makes them popular for racing among the local population.
