A pony is a small horse that’s perfect for kids like you to ride and have fun with!
Long ago, people in many parts of the world had ponies to help them with work and transportation.
Ponies come from cool places like Iceland, Shetland, and even some parts of America.
Even though they’re smaller than regular horses, ponies are super strong and can carry heavy loads.
Ponies are known to be smart, and sometimes, they can be a little cheeky or playful.
Many kids learn to ride on ponies because they’re just the right size and not too tall.
People also use ponies in shows, races, and even for therapy to help others feel better.
So, the next time you see a pony, remember they’re not just cute, but they have a rich history and are full of surprises!
