I have ZERO clue what breed these animals are - from research it seems it's the Criollo that's more native to Cuba, but these obviously aren't "purebred". They're narrow as hell, with tiny Arabian bodies and big Mustang heads. Only the youngster that was tied up with a saddle on actually looked like a "normal" horse, almost a Thoroughbred cross.
Anyway, enjoy the pics! My mom's pony was named Cucaracha and my horse is Hemiento? Something like that, the guide couldn't speak a lick of English, haha.
Baby pony! The other woman on the ride was riding his dam.
My mom and the trail guide.
Me and my pony!
The other couple.
My pony! Tell me you aren't DIGGING his fancy bridle?!
Safety? What safety?!
The grouchy mare with an even COOLER bridle
The cute youngster in training
I eventually got to touch him on the neck but he was VERY shy.
