SA Boerperd stallion Klinker Battaljon. It's a breed you hear little about outside South Africa. If you go to Wikipedia, you'll  be underwhelmed - Boer Pony. (Also underwhelming is the quality of the photos I could find.) But the breed is solid. Developed by the colonialists from Arab-Barb stock and later tweaked with thoroughbred, Arabian, Hackney, Cleveland Bay, and others, it is versatile. While small, it's no smaller than, for example, a Paso Fino. Many are gaited. photo: Deon Harris.

SA Boerperd stallion. This stud farm, which has some of the best photos of the breed, appears not to divulge the names of the horses.

Boer horse. During this period (late 18th century) the Basotho under Moshesh raided the Boer and became a mounted nation. Due to the opening of the Suez canal the main sea routes to India changed and horses were no longer exported to India. This resulted in a decline in the horse breeding.
