History The origin in uncertain, probably descended from Celtic pony. Bred in the mountains and wild regions of Wales for many generations, their acknowledged beauty does not mean they are merely a ´pretty toy´ - centuries of ´survival of the fittest´ has ensured the sound constitution, iron hard limbs and great intelligence which combined with the legendary Welsh temperament, makes the ideal child´s pony of today. They can be seen ridden and driven all over the world - equally at home in the cold of Canada and Sweden or the heat of Africa and Australia.
