About  Galiceno  Horses Galiceno

Galiceno horses were developed in Mexico, from horses imported by Hernan Cortes, mostly thought to be Portuguese Garrano and Galician Ponies of Spain. It is thought that Sorraia blood was added at some point in the breed''s history. The ancestors of the Galiceno were among sixteen horses landed by Cortes during his Mexican invasion in 1519 for use in the mines and as transport. During the rest of the 16th century, conquistadors continued to bring horses into what is now Mexico, including many small-framed, smooth-gaited horses. Many of these horses eventually escaped or were released and formed feral bands in Mexico''s mountainous interior. Over the next few centuries, local inhabitants began to catch and use horses from the increa ...

About  Galician Pony  Horses Galician Pony

Galician Ponies are from Galicia, in the northwest of Spain. The region has a very wet climate and numerous low mountains.

They are a mix of Celtic horses, Roman horses, and horses brought to Spain by the Suevos. More recently they have been crossbred with other breeds. Despite their ethnic heterogeneity (three types of Galician ponies can be found in different parts of Galicia) the main characteristics are their straight profile, linear proportions, height of between 1.20 and 1.30 meters, and a chestnut coat. An interesting characteristic of one of the three types is the long mustache which appears on the upper lips of the older mares.

They are large for a pony, but smaller than a horse. They are rugged and h ...

About Garrano do Minho HorsesGarrano do Minho

Garrano (also known as Minho, Minho, or Tres os Montes) horses are an ancient breed, descended from the same stock as the famous Sorraias. Sorraias live mainly between the two rivers Sor and Raia, while Garranos lives in North-Portugal, so they developed differently according to their habitats. Garranos mainly lives in the fertile regions of Minho and Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro, and have probably had more outside blood influence than Sorraias.  

It is generally believed that the Garrano is one of the ancestors to Andalusian and Galician Ponies. Recently, they have had infusions of Arabian blood, implemented by the Portuguese Ministry of Agriculture. This has refined the breed, but the ponies have also begun to l ...

About  Giara Horses Giara

Also known as the "Cavallino della Giara" (The little horse of Giara), it is originally from the highland region of the same name, in Sardinia. Little is known about its origins. Probably it was brought into Sardinia by the Greeks in the 5th or 4th century B.C., at the time of the nuraghe. It is accustomed to grazing free in its difficult native terrain.

This was established by the “Istituto dirnIncremento Ippico di Orzieri” (the Orzieri Institute for Horse Breeding) and used horses selected from the grazing herds.

About Gotland Pony HorsesGotland Pony

Gotland Ponies (also known as Russ or Skogsruss ponies) are believed to be descended from pre-historic horses that migrated west from the plains of Asia. They are indigenous to the island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea off the Swedish coast. In the 1800s Oriental blood was introduced to the original breed.  

Until recently, with the coming of mechanization, the Gotland pony was extensively used by Swedish farmers for light draft work. Their relatively great strength and endurance adapted it to such work. At this time, there remains a herd of non-domesticated Gotland ponies. They live on the island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea off the Swedish coast in a forest at Lojsta.

They are the only broken-colored horse breed of the British Isles, and are particularly associated with the Pavee and Roma travelling peoples of Britain and Ireland.

The color and look of the breed were refined in the years after the Second World War. Horses of this type were first exported to the United Stat ...
