Strong and Hardy: The New Forest Pony

Submitted by Ine Zwaans: My broodmare Asterhof's Leontine (Tongerenhof's Peridoot x Valentino). She gave me so much pleasure and beautiful off spring, and she earned the predicates Kroon, Preferent, and Prestatiefokmerrie. She had the nicest temperament and was a good mother. She died too soon and I still miss her.

The strong & hardy New Forest Pony! We are celebrating them as our December Breed of the Month on YourDressage! We asked our social media followers to share a photo of their favorite New Forest Pony or cross and got some great photos of this uncommon breed!

Did you know that dressage riders who choose New Forest Ponies as their mounts are eligible for awards through the Adequan®/USDF All-Breeds Awards program, as the New Forest Pony Society of North America participates in the program. Learn more here:
