5 Types Of Mustang Horses

|

When you hear the word mustang, you likely imagine a wild horse. Most get lumped into one category. In reality, there are many different types of mustangs. Each one is slightly different, depending on their location, conformation, and heritage.

Types of Mustangs

Kiger Mustang: Spanish blood runs strongly through the heritage of these horses. They’re from the Beaty Butte region of Oregon. This desirable type is known for their dun color and Barb head. Kigers usually stand between 13.2 and 16 hands with compact, muscular bodies.

They’re also featured in the movie, Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron.

Pryor Mountain Mustang: Closely linked to the original Spanish horse, this type is often labeled the purest of the group. They reside in the Pryor Mountains of Montana. These horses come in a range of colors, such as black, dun, buckskin and grulla. They usually also have primitive markings. Though only between 13 and 14 hands, they’re stout and muscular.

Cerbat Mustang: A small group of these wild horses can be located in Arizona. They’re between 750-800 pounds and 14 to 16 hands high. Though commonly bay in color, others like black, sorrel, and dun exist.

Colonial Spanish Mustang: A wild horse of North Carolina’s Outer Banks, they’re descendants of the horses from the Spanish conquistadors. These horses only stand roughly 12 to 13 hands. They also have finer builds. This type is managed by the state of North Carolina and the National Park Service.

Coyote Canyon Mustang: This herd was removed from Southern California in 2003. Four stallions were saved and reside at a ranch in Warner Springs Valley. These horses are smaller and more refined than most. They come in chestnut, dun, and a few other colors.

There are other types of wild horses, though this list contains some of the more popular ones.
