This is one of the rarest horse breeds on the planet! The Skyros is a pony breed that originates from the island of Skyros in Greece (from which they got the name). The origins of these horses date back to antiquity and they have lived totally isolated from other equine breeds for a very long time.
Skyros is a docile and resistant pony that was used by the island’s farmers. It is even possible that they were used by Alexander the Great in his conquests. Today, these little horses make an ideal mount for children and are also used in equestrian therapy.
