pony of the americas
The POA first was developed in 1954, when Leslie Boomhower, an Iowa breeder of Shetland Ponies, founded the breed. A friend offered him an Arabian/Appaloosa mare that had been accidentally bred to a Shetland Pony stallion. Boomhower accepted the offer after the colt was born. The colt was named Black Hand, and he became the foundation sire for the breed.
The Pony of the Americas, or the POA, was developed to be a childrenís mount. The breedís origins are in America, where an Iowa breeder accidentally crossed a Shetland stallion with an Arabian/Appaloosa mare to produce a pony-sized mount with a stunning hand-shaped Appaloosa marking.
