About Bosnian Pony HorsesAbout Bosnian Pony Horses



Bosnian Ponies, found in Bosnia and Herzegovina, are arnmember of the group of horses known as the Balkan breeds, and are thought to berndescended from a cross between the Tarpan and Asian Wild Horses.rnrn 

rnrnBeginning in the 1900s, they have been selectively bredrnthrough a government-controlled breeding programs. The principle breedingrncenter for many years was the Borike Stud in Bosnia. The state controlled allrnbreeding stallions, while mares were privately owned. During the 1940s threernstallions, Agan, Barat, and Misco, were used to improve the breed. Agan andrnBarat resembled the Asian Wild Horse type, while Misco was a lighter type.rnrn 

rnrnUntil the Bosnian War, there were strict standards,rnincluding performance tests, for stallions in order to assure the quality ofrnthe breed. This strict control resulted in a pony that was functional and had arnvariety of uses.rnrn rnrn 

rnrnBosnian Ponies generally stands 12.1 to 14 hands high, andrnmay be bay, brown, black, gray, chestnut or palomino in color. They have arnheavy head with a straight profile, a short, muscular neck, fairly flatrnwithers, long, sloping shoulders, and a deep chest. The back is straight andrnthe quarters sloping. The legs are well-muscled, although short, with clean,rnbroad joints and strong tendons. They are sure footed. The breed bears a strongrnresemblance to the Asian Wild Horse, although more refined due to the influencernof oriental blood. They are hardy and tough, and generally docile and goodrnnatured in temperament, making them easy to handle and ride. They are easyrnkeepers.rnrn 

The Bosnian Pony is used for light farm and draft work,rnpacking, and riding. They are frequently used as pack animals in rough terrainrnunsuited for motorized vehicles.
