Virginia Highlander
The Virginia highlander is a small breed of horse with a four-beat ambling gait.

The inspiration for the breed was Pogo, a chestnut stallion foaled in 1960, a small crossbred horse, thought to have been sired by a Welsh pony, out of an Arabian/Tennessee Walker mare. He had a natural singlefoot gait. His owner, the late William M. Pugh, intrigued by the good-natured, naturally gaited stallion, developed a breeding program for small gaited horses, by crossing Pogo and his descendants with other Arabians, Tennessee Walkers, Morgans, and American Saddlebreds as well as Hackney ponies, and Welsh ponies. Horses that met Pugh's criteria for conformation, disposition and gaited ability were bred on. The registry began with two foundation stallions, Shadow of the Ridge and Pugh's Red Cloud.
