About Faroe Pony HorsesAbout Faroe Pony Horses



Faroe Ponies (also known as Faroese Island Horses or DanishrnPonies), are small ponies, they are between 115 cm -125 cm tall. Because of theirrnheight technically they are a pony, but people on the Faroe Islands call themrnhorses, because of their strength.

rnrnFaroe horses are an iconic image of the Faroe Islands. Theyrnhave been on the Faroe Islands for many hundred years. In the 1960s there werernapproximately 5 - 6 horses left on the Faroe Islands because of the huge exportrnon horses to the mines in the United Kingdom. With a huge effort, that numberrnhas now increased to about 50 horses and the aim is to maintain and develop themrnfurther. rnrn 

rnrnThey are mainly brown, red, and black. They are very hardy,rnfriendly, adaptable, and surefooted with 3 gaits - Walk, Trot, and Canter.

rnrnIn the past they were used to haul heavy loads and when theyrnwere not at work they were released onto the mountains where they roamed free.rnToday it is mostly used as a riding horse for children who want to learn thernart of riding.
