  The Hucul is also known as the Carpathian Pony and native to the Carpathian Mountains in what is now Romania. They are a unique breed, with only about 500 breeding mares in the world. Their main traits of friendliness, great stamina and endurance, make them an excellent breed. They are often used to carry loads in the forests, as pack animals, or as riding horses in the mountains. They are solidly built and well muscled, with slightly sloped shoulders and well formed flanks. Its withers are pronounced and its back is straight and long. Its head is well-proportioned with a full forelock, small eyes and small ears. The neck is muscular. The Hucul can be seen in common coat colors including bay, palomino, dun and gray.
