Kiso pony's hometown Sep 20, 2010
Mount Ontake is a beautiful volcano in Nagano. The mountain is 3,067 meters above sea level. Kiso uma no sato, Kiso horse's Park is located at the foot of Mount Ontake. Kiso pony is a native species of Japanese pony. Being breed in the mountains, it has a long torso and short strong legs. Their hoofs are hard. A Kiso pony had been convenient for riding and farming. But its average withers height was 136 meters, so army decided to introduce a Western horse. The Kiso pony was on the verge of extinction. But thanks for the preservation of it, the number of a Kiso pony are increasing to 200 head of horse. You can see and touch Kiso ponies at Kiso horse's Park.
