Skyrian horses



The Skyrian horse is an ancient Greek breed which survived only in Skyros and which nowadays numbers around 190 specimens on the island and 270 specimens worldwide. It is a small-sized breed unique in the world, and scientifically called Equus caballus Skyriano.Due to its size inferior to 1.48m, it should be classified as a pony. But despite its maximal size of 1.15m, the anatomy of its body shows clear characteristics of a horse and sets the Skyrian horse in a category of its own.
