Shetland ponies could have pulled chariots

1 post in this topic

A horse bone unearthed at Britain's only Roman circus suggests that chariots could have been pulled by Shetland ponies, according to archaeologists. 

The find was made in Colchester, Essex, when a large entrance gate was uncovered. 

The "well preserved" gate was thought to be one of 12 that gave 8,000 spectators access to the site for 150 years.

Experts have also been examining the "ambiguous" hoof which appeared to belong to a large Shetland Pony which was used for chariot racing.
