    Default Horse stallions that look like overgrown ponies

    I am looking for some advise on any horse stallions currently standing who look like overgrown ponies - in a good way!!!

    Very pretty "pony" head, average to smaller ears, not too long anywhere and that moves like a freak! I might have just lost all of them with that last request, but send anything you think would work.

    For example, I think Sir Gregory looks like an overgrown pony.

    But who else is out there that you can recommend.......

    Thank you

    Sure Hit has always sort of reminded me of an overgrown pony. And in a good way, of course - very cute and adorable, with a pretty face and easy-going, puppy dog personality.

    And many Morgans. (OP, I realize you're probably trying to stay within "traditional" breeds, but ...)

    Having seen Sir Gregory in person, I wouldn't call him "pony-ish" at all. Jaw dropping, yes. Pony, no.

    I've seen a number of Swedish stallions that have the face you're talking about... my mare is by Braveheart II, and I always joke she has a head like a giant welsh pony...

    ETI Leonardo, around 15'3, Holsteiner stallion. Lestroy and Galisco Van de Helle from mother's side.
    This was last summer during the 5yrs old tour. They got second place. He always jumps like that.

    Gorgeous mover, could have been an upper level dressage horse easily! (Will/is now upper level jumping horse of course!)

    Short back, round barrel, long legs, tiny ears, amazing neck and lovely small head with big cheeks! Lots of mane and tail. AND has a good mind!
