Also called the Deutsches Reitpony & Weser-Ems Pony, the German Riding Pony is a relatively new breed that was developed as a pony with horse like characteristics and retaining a horse type. They are often described as mini warmbloods.


They were developed by crossing Welsh, Connemara, New Forest, Dulmen, Arabian & Anglo-Arabian bloodlines. The resulting pony is elegant with clean confirmation and lively action. Today they are their own breed and new blood is no longer added to their studbooks.


Average height 13.2 – 14.2 hands
