About Pottok HorsesAbout Pottok Horses



Pottok horses originate from the Basque region of France. They have been in demand for quite some time and are considered one of the three main native horse breeds. Their history comes from the Magdalenian types of horses, which were dated all the way back to seven thousand B.C. They were once considered a very wild horse but have since become domesticated.

Just as their popularity began to grow, they were hurt by the high demand for horses that were larger for agricultural purposes. Experts believe that at some point there were only a mere 150 Pottok horses left. However today yhey are popular due to a gentile nature. They have been featured in films and have also been serving as a mascot for a rugby team.    

Pottok horses were once utilized in the circus, which can say quite a bit for their personalities. Well known as sensitive and caring animals, they are durable, simple to feed, and considered rather endearing. They have been utilized for riding, harness work, and all rounder skills. Experts have claimed there are significant differences within the mountain and valley herds of these horses, as the mountain ones are usually much smaller in size.  

Pottok horses stand around fourteen hands tall. They have a straight head, very hard feet, lean legs, sloping shoulders, short necks, and long backs. Pottok horses are bred in all coat variations. They have a head that is considered attractive and slightly dished in horse terms, and they also have short ears.
