New Forest Pony, Hampshire, England.

The New Forest pony is one of the recognised mountain and moorland or native pony breeds of the British Isles.

The breed is indigenous to the New Forest in Hampshire in southern England, where equines have lived since before the last Ice Age; remains dating back to 500,000 BC have been found within 50 miles (80 km) of the heart of the modern New Forest. DNA studies have shown ancient shared ancestry with the Celtic-type Asturcón and Pottok ponies. Today only ponies whose parents are both registered as purebred in the approved section of the stud book may be registered as purebred.
