We’re all familiar with the majesty of draft horses and the wildness of stallions, but what about those under-the-radar horse breeds? There are so many beautiful creatures that roam countrysides that you don’t know about. Even if you didn’t want a pony as a child, these ridiculously gorgeous horses are going to make you want one…like, right now.
2. Friesian stallion
You thought these were just in fairy tales? You were (thankfully) wrong.
Yes, that is a GOLD HORSE. In 2013, it was voted the most beautiful horse in the world.
They may be mini, but there’s nothing small about how beautiful these little guys are.
6. Norwegian fjord horse
7. Irish cob
They also go by gypsy horse, gypsy cob, gypsy vanner, or tinker horse.
Made famous for their beautifully styled “dances,” these horses draw thousands to their shows around the world every year.
9. Andalusian horse
They’ve also been called the Pure Spanish Horse (Pura Raza Española in Spanish).
Most often seen sporting a beer cart behind them, these huge horses are certifiably beautiful.
11. Icelandic horse
The scruffy look definitely works for these guys.
If I had hair like this, I’d flaunt it, too.
How beautiful are they? I rode horses as a little girl, but these creatures really renewed my love of them!
