Mustang [edit]

 

History
The Mustang Pony is native to North America, descended from Arab and Barb horses of the Spanish settlers. The Mustangs were captured by Native Americans and developed into a hardy breed whilst freely roaming barren deserts. The Mustang Pony was later crossed with larger breeds to create working horses such as the Quarter Horse, Appaloosa, Pinto and Palomino. The Mustang Pony is now a protected breed following a decline in numbers. 
 
Mustangs were often ridden by Plains Indians. The Cheyenne thought that mustangs spotted on the head and chest were sacred and would bring them victory in battle. 
 
General Appearance 
 Mustang ponies are slight in build with hard legs and feet. The Mustang Pony can be any colour but browns, bays, chestnuts and duns are most common. 
 
Temperament 
The Mustang Pony is courageous, independent but can have an uncertain temper. They are quick to learn and follow directions easily once they have the rider has gained their trust. 
 
To fight off an attack from wolves, mustangs group into a tight circle with the colts inside. As wolves try to penetrate the circle, the mustangs stamp their hooves and snap their teeth viciously. 
 
Uses 
The Mustang Pony is used for stock work, endurance riding and as a general riding horse.
