About Esperia Pony HorsesAbout Esperia Pony Horses



Esperia ponies originated in Lazio, (the Monti Ausoni and Monti Aurunci area, bridging the provinces of Frosinone and Latina), Italy.

They were called the "Pony of Esperia" after the Baron Ambrogio Roselli di Esperia who undertook their selective breeding.

In the past they were used for carrying light loads and for their meat. It was only in 1962 that they were officially recognized as a distinct breed and after thirty years they were added to the official register at the Associazione Provinciale Allevatori di Frosinone (Association of Breeders in the Province of Frosinone).

These are wild horses, but once they are trained they show an equable temperament in the company of adults and children and are suitable for use in riding schools.

They can forage on very poor land and survive in very dry and barren conditions, going without water for long periods.
