POA (Pony of the Americas)

Breed group: Ponies

History

Details: The POA (Pony of the Americas) was developed in the 1950’s to provide a good-sized pony with a gentle disposition, handsome appearance, speed and stamina for young riders who were too big for a pony but not quite ready for a full sized horse.

According to the Pony of the Americas Club (POAC), "In 1954, Les Boomhower was a Shetland pony breeder and a lawyer with his own practice in Mason City, Iowa. A neighbor offered Les an Arabian/Appaloosa mare who had been bred to a Shetland stallion. She was due to foal that spring. Les waited until the foal was born before he bought the mare. The little colt born of this union was white with what looked like black paint smears all over his body."
