  • Chirstos Alexandridis (a1)


The Pineia horse is a rather small horse bred in a limited population size (373 mares and 6 stallions) in the Western Peloponnese (Greece). It is descended from the Greek mountain pony crossed by anglo-arab, anglo-norman and nonius stallions at the beginning of this century. It is characterized by a robust conformation, a lively temperament and a perfect adaptation to difficult mountainous environments. It is used for vegetation management and pack transport and as a stepping pacer it offers a comfortable ride.

Le cheval de Pineia est un animal plutôt petit, élevé en nombre restreint (373 juments et 6 étalons) en Péloponnèse occidentale (Grèce). Il descend du poney de la montagne grecque, croisé avec des étalons des races anglo-arabe, anglo-normande et nonius au début de ce siècle. Il se distingue par sa robustesse, son tempérament vivant et son adaptation à un environnement difficile. On l'utilise comme bête de charge et pour les travaux aux champs. Son allure en amblant offre une monte confortable.
