About Canadian Rustic Pony HorsesAbout Canadian Rustic Pony Horses



Canadian Rustic Ponies originated in Canada, particularly thernSaskatchewan and Manitoba provinces. rnrn 

rnrnThey were developed by Dr. Peter Neifeld of Manitoba,rnCanada. They were developed by crossing Heck horses from the Atlanta Zoo inrnAtlanta, Georgia with Arabian horse-Welsh pony crosses.

rnrnOn January 23, 1989, the Canadian Rustic Pony Associationrnwas formed, incorporated under the new Canadian federal Animal Pedigree Act,rnalso known as Bill C-67. Prior to this, since 1978, Canadian Rustic Ponies hadrnbeen registered through a registry based in the United States, and as ofrnSeptember 1989, 72 ponies had been US-registered. These ponies were eligible tornbecome double-registered under the Canadian and US registries, and many did so.rnNo ponies were found outside of Manitoba and Saskatchewan provinces as ofrnSeptember 1989, but this was expected to change as more breeders became awarernof the new breed.rnrn 

These ponies stand 12.2 and 13.2 hands (50 to 54 inches, 127rnto 137 cm) high. They can be gray, buckskin or bay, have primitive markingsrnsuch as dorsal stripes and zebra stripes, and have partially raised manes andrnfull flowing tails. The facial profile is straight or slightly dished, with arnprominent jaw. The neck is thick but arched the girth and shoulders thick, andrnthe croup slightly sloping. The legs are strong, and the ponies are said tornmove fluidly, especially at the trot. They are highly intelligent, easy torntrain, willing to please, extremely hardy, exceptionally fast in their gaits,rnand have excellent endurance. The Canadian Rustic Pony is used mainly forrnjumping, driving, or family pets.
