I have a retired polo pony and was told she is an Argentine Polo Pony. Is this the breed you are talking about? Or would she be mixed with a Criollo? Any idea? I am so curious about her background.
I love her dearly.

Yes, that is the breed. They are great horses too, slightly smaller than the criollo. The criollo is quite stocky, similar to a quarter horse. The polo horse is slender and more delicate looking.

She is very delicate looking but she can certainly move! She is very fast. I am assuming they are mostly TB????

Oh yes! They are very fast and quick moving. With very fast reactions, they were bred to respond quickly, since that is what the sport requires. They have a lot of tb in them, I am not sure exactly how much.
