agree  Jochen König: "However, in most places, the breed is considered a 'horse' and to call it a 'pony' is likely to offend many breeders." Says Wiki.

agree  Charles Ek: I would use only "Icelandic horse" for this breed. The "pony" appellation seems to be used only to redirect Internet searches. The Google results limited to sites originating in Iceland show an overwhelming preference for "horse."
