About Baguales HorsesBaguales

Baguales are wild horses that roam the vast Patagonian grasslands and forests of Argentina and Chile. They are a sturdy and robust horse; they can tolerate the highly variable climate of their native region.

Today, a few hundred Baguales horses remain with in Torres del Paine. However, the National Park authorities consider these horses as invasive and have ordered for their removal. Several research teams and non-profit organizations ...

About Baguio Light Horse HorsesBaguio Light Horse

Baguio light horses and Baguio ponies are Philippine horses known for their elegance, hardiness, and disease resistance ability.

About Baladi HorsesBaladi

Baladi (also known as Egyptian Horses) are an Egyptian horse of questionable bloodlines. They are no longer considered an individual breed as they once were. There has been significant “Arabization” of the indigenous horses of Egypt, due to the short distance between Arabia and the Nile. The resulting horses come from combinations of Arabian bloodlines and are unable to be registered. Plus an influx of English Thoroughbred blood was added for increased speed and size, but because of their lack of papers these animals are shunned by breeders and tribesmen. Although they are still magnificent horses and often faster over short distances, (but not as hardy over distance as the pureblood Arabian).

About Bali Pony HorsesBali Pony

Bali Ponies are an ancient breed now living on the Indonesian island of Bali.

Therefore, the Bali pony likely has been influenced by both the Mongolian horse, and various other eastern breeds.
