Product Description

About the Author

Mary Bassett is one of the world's leading experts on spotted ponies and has been breeding Native British Spotted Ponies seriously for the last twenty years. As the most prolific producer in this country, she has exported Bromells spotted ponies to Holland, Sweden, Denmark and Switzerland, where they have had a great impact on the breed of those countries. In 1983 she established the famous four-in-hand Broomells Spotted Driving Team, which quickly rose to national and international fame. In 1995 she organised the first International Spotted Pony Conference. As current chairman of the Spotted Pony Breed Society (Great Britain) and a judge both in this country and abroad, Mary Bassett has probably done more than anyone else to promote the virtues of this unique British breed.

Format: Paperback
Spotted horses and ponies are generally referred to as types rather than breeds, principally because spotting can occur in almost any breed. However, by limiting outcrosses to just four native breeds (Shetlands, Dartmoor and Welsh, up to 14.2hh., the Spotted Pony Breed Society (GB) has encouraged the breeding of a type which, although it cannot yet be called a 'closed breed' (i.e. with no outcrosses allowed), nevertheless combines hybrid vigour with an increasingly recognisable 'type'.
Mary Bassett is one of the world's leading experts on spotted ponies, and The Native British Spotted Pony provides an attractive introduction to the increasingly popular spotted pony.
