No. A pony is not a horse at all. It is a member of the Equine family but it is not a horse. Here are your classifications, you have a miniature horse which is any horse under 48 inches of height, then you have a pony which stands at a height of anywhere between 14.2 hands and 48 inches, then you have your regular horse that is anything about 14.2 hands.So I have a little different take on this thread. A pony is any animal (horse) that
is under 14.3. Anything above 14.3 a horse. Any breed can produce a pony sized animal.
