Origins and attitudes
Saddle and light shooting ponies, originally from Norway. The origins of this horse are very ancient and refer to the Nordic pony descended from the Mongolian Wild Horse and the Tarpan. It was bred up to 900 by individual breeders without any selective criteria. Since the end of the Second World War, a rational and selective breeding has started that has brought the breed back to the levels that compete in a few years, especially thanks to the Rimfakse stallion who can be considered almost the progenitor of the modern Northlands breed.
