Origins and attitudes

The Landais (or Landese) is a pony native to the forests of the Landes, in south-western France. The origins of this horse go back to prehistory; it also appears to have received Arab blood supplies as early as the Battle of Poitiers (732). Barthais is also included in this breed, once considered a separate breed, slightly taller and heavier. Today pure subjects are rare.
Rugged and rustic, it is considered a saddle horse (also for young riders) and light shooting.
