About Deli Pony HorsesAbout Deli Pony Horses



Deli ponies are native to the island of Sumatra inrnIndonesia. They are closely related to Batak Ponies;both were developed in the Batak hills. Theyrnare most likely named from the large numbers of ponies exported from the portrnof Deli. They were first exported to Singapore, Malacca, and Penang, and fromrnthere spread they out across Malaysia.rnrn rnrn 

rnrnIt is believed that the first horses in the MalayrnArchipelago arrived several hundred years ago, either by Hindu invaders fromrnthe west or merchants from Pegu and China. It is very probable that the ShanrnPonies, native to Burma and bred by its hill tribes, were imported to thernhighlands of Northern Sumatra where there was open country. From there, thesernhorses were crossbred with Arabian stallions brought in by the Arab merchantsrnsometime around 1375.rnrn 

rnrnDeli ponies have an attractive head, well-shaped, and high-crestedrnnecks due to a strong infusion of Arabian blood. They are very small (averagingrnonly about 11.3 hands) although some reach up to 12.2 hands. Their most commonrncolor is seal brown, though skewbalds also can be found.rnrn 

rnrnDeli ponies are one of eight breeds native to Indonesia, thernothers are the Batak Pony, Bali Pony, Java Pony, Sumba and Sumbawa Pony (andrnclosely related Sandalwood Pony), and Timor Pony.
