The Australian Pony
This is a breed of pony that I had not heard about before so you and I will learn about it together. These ponies are strong and gentle. They can grow as high as 14 hands, or 56 inches high. Did you remember that there are 4 inches to each hand and that’s the way we measure the height of ponies and horses? Ponies can be as tall as 58 inches high. After that, they are considered horses.
Australian Ponies are often used for riding. They are known for being very smart. One of the most common colors for the Australian Pony is brown and grey. There is a picture on an Australian Pony below.
