Breed Released: Original Breed Found On: Grass
Originally bred in Argentina, the Falabella is the smallest horse breed in the world. Originally bred from small Thoroughbreds and Shetlands, it retained the proportions of its larger ancestors and is therefore a miniature horse, not a pony. The breed is intelligent, gentle and docile and easily adapts to its environment. Even though it is so small, it is a good jumper. The Falabella ranges from 7.2-8.1hh.
