About Burmese Pony HorsesAbout Burmese Pony Horses



Burmese Ponies, also known as Shan Ponies, originated in the Shan state of Eastern Burma, where they are bred today by local tribes. They are similar to Bhutia, Spiti, and Manipuri ponies of the Himalayan Mountains, suggesting these breeds have a similar origin, most likely deriving from the Mongolian horse and other Eastern breeds.  

Burmese ponies may reach 13 hands high, and are brown, bay, chestnut, black or gray in color. They are not particularly pretty horses, having been bred for function rather than looks. The head usually has a straight profile, the neck is muscular. The back may be long, and the croup is sloping. The ponies do not have very pronounced withers, and a rather upright shoulder, creating a short stride (which is desirable in mountainous terrain, even if considered a fault in a riding horse). The chest is deep and wide, the hooves small and hard, and the legs are fine, yet strong. They tend to be sickle hocked and the forearms and gaskins are poor. The Burmese Ponies are sure footed, tough, have excellent endurance, are of a quiet temperament, are willing. They are not fast and are not particularly athletic, but they do jump well. They are easy keepers and able to live in harsh environmental conditions.
