About Landais Pony Horses
Landais horses come from the sandy beaches of Southwest
France. They are related to small Barthais hores and Arabian horses. The result
is a small (about 13 hands tall) Arab-style horse. Sometime in the beginning of
the twentieth century, there were an estimated two thousand of them roaming
wildly worldwide. Just after the Second World War, they were decreasing in
popularity, but in the 1970’s a studbook was produced and improved in numbers
since then. Today they are found in France and Spain.
horses are used for riding and harness purposes alike. They are generally
black, bay, chestnut, and other brown shades. They are neat in appearance, have
a high set tail, attractive head, and sloping shoulders and quarters. Also,
they have muscular legs and a large wither.
