Available information on this breed appears to be very limited and sketchy. All the information I have been able to find seems to have originated from a single location. If you have more details please contact me at the address on my home page.
The Abyssinian horse (or Gala) is small and round, about 13.3 hands tall. The breed is well adjusted to the life and work in the mountains.
The Abyssinian originates from Ethiopia and is a light pony breed. Today they are found all around the area of the Red Sea.
