German Riding Pony is what you get when you cross a pony stallion or a pony mare with a full grown horse, usually a warmblood horse, such as the breeds known as Hanoverian, Westphalian, Rhinelander, or Trakhener. Many are bred right here in the USofA. They are quite athletic, like most large breed performance horse types, they are just doing it in a pony suit with the gaits (movement) of a large horse (not pitty-pat gaits.. these guys MOVE OUT!)! Usually they are no taller than 14.2 hands tall at the withers (that area that would be right in front of the saddle). (one hand is 4")

This particular pony is a 14.1 hand buckskin colored gelding (aka "missing the family jewels! LOL). Buckskins have a golden body, with dark black legs to the knees and the hind leg "hocks", and they also will have a black mane and tail. This particular pony has what we in the horse industry call, "Chrome"! That means he is accented with, 4 white 'socks' and a big old white star on his face, and a white 'snip' on his nose! His color, and the palomino color (think Roy Rogers horse called "TRIGGER"). These colors are the most highly desirable in the resale department! ;)

This shot of "SF SPIRIT DREAM" (aka nicknamed "COSMO") was of him having a blast trotting through the puddles in my arena!
