About Tibetan Pony HorsesAbout Tibetan Pony Horses



Tebetan Ponies are descended from ancient stock, likely partly from Mongolian Ponies and Chinese pony breeds, although they have been bred pure for years. They are are well-regarded by the local people, and they have been traditionally kept by both wealthy Tibetans and farmers alike, as well as by the Dalai Lama. They were sent as gifts to Chinese Emperors, especially during the Ming and Tang dynasties.    

As small as they are the ponies are known for their incredible strength and endurance, for sure-footedness and resilience. Their heads usually have a pronounced jaw line, straight profile, and small ears and eyes. The neck is a muscular and a short, the chest is deep, the shoulder is straight. The ponies have powerful hindquarters, and short, strong legs with good joints. They have strong hoof. Standing at 12.2 hh, they are usually bay or gray, but may be any solid color.  

They are are used as light draft animals, packing and riding.  

Tibetan Ponies have been extensively crossbred with the Bhutia Ponies and the Spiti Ponies to create a new type called the Indian Country Bred. However, Tibetan ponies in their pure form does retain their individual characteristics and heritage.
