Le Ballet de l'Acier
Poor to Excellent riding horse
This pony is native to the Pyrénées mountains of France. Due to the mountainous terrain of its native land, the Mérens is a very sure-footed animal, and as such makes an excellent trekking pony. Although not large, the pony can be used by adult riders as well as making an excellent riding pony for children.
These ponies stand between 13 and 14.1 hands high and have black coats. Due to Arabian influence, the head is small and refined, the neck strong and short, the back long, the shoulder solid and the hindquarters well-rounded. Although light and somewhat short, the legs are strong. The mane and tail are thick.
