    What breed is Reefa?

    So my friend just bought this pony for her 10yr old son to ride, he's 7 years old and 13.3hh but she has no idea what breed he is. Neither did the previous owner, and they had him from a youngster. He's absolutely adorable & I fell in love with him as soon as I saw him. He's really sweet natured, but he has only ever been used as a plod around for children so isnt properly schooled & is nervous when being schooled. I've been helping my friend school him but he gets nervous when asked to trot & canter but he is completely safe as far as I can tell. What breed do you guys think he is?

    I don't know... It looks like he might have some Welsh and Gypsy cob in there.

    You know, you guys in the UK have alot of pony breeds that we in US are not so familiar with. Such as Fell Horse, New Forest Pony, Cob this and Cob that. I wouldn't hazard a guess , 'cause I think it might be one of those breeds that are almost nonexistant in the US.
    Cute pony and very sturdy looking. Looks like he could easily carry an adult.

    Thick little guy! Its going to be hard for us to guess because most of us are from a different continent so dealing with different breeds. You guys have so many different cobs, that I wouldn't be surprised if he was cob cross because they are very thick but still maintain that pony height. Either way he's gorgeous. You guys are really fortunate to have those breeds up in the UK. All we have here it seems is thoroughbreds, warmbloods and QHs-nothing else

    He's beautiful.

    This is funny I'm always thinking that you have a lot of unique breeds in the USA that we don't have (we europeans).

    And to the OP: The pony is gorgeous and it looks to be very well behaved too. I can't tell a thing about his breed because I don't know the breeds from your region. But he is very nice build.

    Oh goodness no. I grew up in Southern France before moving here, and believe me, the horse breeds are faaaaar more varied in Europe than they are here. You could get a lot of more "special" breeds here to, but you really need to search and be willing to pay big money for them. Its so expensive, that in a lot of cases its cheaper to import and fly them in, than buy them locally! I miss Europe!

    he is so well behaved, its unreal lol for a green pony he is amazing. He's quite happy to have kids climbing all over him, putting things in his mane and such. I've ridden him a few times and he feels nervous but safe at the same time. He seems to be alot more relaxed when its a kid on him though.
