Manipuri Pony, India
The Manipuri Pony is a breed of pony developed in India. Today they are bred mainly for playing polo and racing. The Manipuri Pony is thought to have been derived from ancient stock, as a cross between the Mongolian Wild Horse and the Arabian. They were probably brought to India by invading Tartar tribes, who also brought the equestrian game of polo. The breed has been bred for centuries in the Manipur area of northeast India.
