About Asturcon HorsesAbout Asturcon Horses



Asturcon, also known as Asturian, Horses are a pony from thernAsturias region of northern Spain. They are an ancient breed and their ancestryrnis not known, although most likely they are a cross between Sorraia, Garrano,rnand ancient Celtic ponies. They are usually brown or black, with minimal whiternmarkings. They stand between 11.2 and 12.2 hands (46 and 50 inches, 117 and 127rncm).

Asturcon ponies have a naturally ambling gait that isrncomfortable for the rider. As a result, a large portion of their population wasrntaken to Ireland to produce the Irish Hobby.

These ponies are hardy and resourceful, and able to survivernin the harshest areas. They are obedient and easily domesticated, and are usedrnfor riding, driving, and as pack horses. They tend to have a small but heavyrnhead, a thin neck with a large mane, low withers, a deep chest, straightrnshoulders, and strong legs. They are rounded through the barrel, and have arnsloping croup with a low-set tail.

They historically have faced near extinction, but recentlyrnactivist groups have been formed to protect the pony.
