Pony Walls are the wood walls that are made with 2×4, 2×6 studs instead of using more block to complete the crawl space wall.  Builders state that it takes $1500 their cost to add each additional block row as apposed to a PONY WALL costs 1/3 that.  So builders cut costs and put in place pony walls.  Trouble with pony walls is that they don’t come insulated in a standard foundation vented crawl space.  Alot of moisture is wicked in because it has no insulation from the outside just the exterior covering…hardy plank…etc.  So they leak energy and moisture more than a block wall wood.  Cement blocks are hollow to hold air and air is natures best insulator.  The more air a substance can hold the better the insulation value (R-Value)
