sable island pony

One of the first horses on the island was the stallion, Jolly, who was taken there in 1801, but there were already horses there and it is thought they may have arrived as early as the 16th century. The ancestry of the ponies is unknown, but they owe some debt to the Spanish horse.

Little is known of the first horses on Sable Island, off the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada. The ponies now on the island rarely stand over 14 hands high, but are descended from horses, and owe their small height to their environment.
