Pony of the Americas Description
  The Pony of the Americas was developed especially to be a child's mount and show horse. For this reason, they must be very docile, gently and obedient. They are alert and confident animals. A well-trained POA has very good manners, including the ability to stand quietyly, walk, lope, jog, and stop when requested and back readily. It is bred to be refined but rather small. They have a smooth, symmetrical head with a slightly dished profile. They should have mottled skin around the nostrils and lips and a wide forehead. They are well-muscled animals, with sloping shoulders, prominent withers and deep chests. The forearms are also well-muscled, with broad knees and short cannons. Its back is short and straight, and its hips, thighs, and gaskins are all long and muscular.
