The Welsh Mountain Pony is one of the most perfectly proportioned breed of all the horse breeds. This pony has been used to improve the other native breeds. They also have very powerful hocks and the harsh terrain was also responsible for the bent front knee. They are mainly used for driving and riding. The Welsh Mountain Pony originates from Wales. They are very popular outside of Wales. It has been exported to Europe, the United States, New Zealand and Australia.
