I have often wondered if the "Celtic pony" was in fact a Caspian ?
Victorian archaeologists in Britain often compared the small Bronze Age / Iron Age pony to the Exmoor pony, this theory seemed to have persisted right up to modern time. But this comparison can only be made to the height only. Back in the old days they looked around for a breed that was about the same size that was believed to be an ancient type. But now modern science has proved that the Exmoor pony is not an ancient breed at all. The Caspian was only rediscovered about 48 years ago. The modern osteo archaeologists describe the Bronze Age Celtic pony as follows "rather small and slender" "shoulder heights of 111 cm and 120 cm" The only horse type that fits that size and build is a Caspian. What do you think ?
