Which type of horse is in this video?

I found this video on Youtube and i'm not 100% certain. :(

If it's not too much to ask, could you take a gander at the video and tell?

There's no such breed. They may live in Assateague, but they are Chincoteague Ponies (I believe the two close islands are Assateague, Virginia and Chincoteague, Maryland?). And Chincoteagues aren't a pony breed, they are a horse breed. They're only called ponies for the endearment of the tourists.

(I've taken many a vacation there)

Thanks! I saw videos of the Chincoteagues, too.
I must do more research on them both. I wonder why they are such tourist attractions. O_O

Height doesn't actually make a pony a pony. It's a body type instead. There are several breeds that are below the "14.2HH" range and are still considered horses. These include Icelandics, Chincoteagues and Caspians. As well as that, there are breeds that can be above or below the "cut-off" for being a pony according to height, but are always still horses, such as Arabians, Quarter Horses and Standardbreds.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Okay. I'd put a Haflinger in the horse section. But what about some of the Welsh? They often resemble a small Arabian? Icelandics instead are pony type yet are considered horses. And in 8 years amongst 120 Standardbreds at any guven time i saw ONE in pony height. I guess one could argue

In terms of Icelandics, they are referred to as horses because the breed standard says they are such. Welshes are the opposite - they are always ponies, including the D which can exceed 14.2 hh. Standies of height between 14 and 15 hands are not unusual.

So it's not the type that matters, its what people consider them. I.e. the icelandics....and the Welsh D(tall, but still of pony TYPE)......Or the German and Dutch riding ponies......no pony type here, those are and resemble small warmbloods.
