This style of horse can be found in Scotland, Ireland, United Kingdom, Wales, and the northern parts of France.

The Eriskay temperament is sweet and very wise. They can be around little ones with little or not challenges at all. Not all horses can be left with children unattended, but this breed can easily handle the task. The breed can also reside in virtually any climate range, which is why they can withstand the rain in England and also the working positions that they hold on a daily basis as well. They are described as being very placid, wise horses.

They bode a deep jaw, a tapered muzzle, and can be easily spotted as a dun colored horse that resides in Scotland most of their lives.

Eriskay History

The Eriskay horse comes from Outer Hebrides. They are one of the last breeds that has come from the Celtic Pony sorts. This breed has come from the British Isles, where most of the horses are much smaller in size. The locals, the Pict community of people, were very eager to raise and breed this animal. They have received their unique name from where they are from, the Eric's Isle or otherwise known as the Eriskay area located in Scotland. It's very common to see Eriskay horses grazing there. The crofters was just one group that was very fond of this breed as farmers needed them to work on farm lands and at times even utilized them as a means of transportation for little ones to get to school. They can easily haul heavy loads and survive in harsh weather conditions. Currently, the breed has survived becoming virtually extinct not long ago as a result of cross breeding. They are running the risk of losing their status as a popular breed still to this day.
