The breed is also sometimes referred to as the Balearic Island pony and its origins are obscure. Some claim it is an ancient breed descended from horses of Ancient Greece. There is a claim that original stock came from Skyros in Greece. Because modern government officials in Spain consider the breed unimportant, little is known about it. Genetic studies suggest that the Balearic is a distinct breed from other Iberian horse breeds, including other breeds that live on various islands in the Balearic chain.

The Balearic is a breed of horse that originated in Spain, and is native to the island of Majorca (Mallorca) off the southern coast, one of the Balearic Islands. It matures to about 14 hands tall, and it is disputed if the breed should be classified as a horse or a pony. The breed is considered rare, and little information is available.
