The pony developed in Mexico from horses imported to South America, mostly thought to be Garrano and the Galician pony of Spain, by Hernán Cortés. It is highly prized in Mexico, being tough with strong powers of endurance, and sound. The breed was introduced to the United States in 1958, and in 1959, a Breeders' Association was formed to maintain the breed. Numbers are still quite small. The pony is suitable for riding, pack, and draft work. They are also good children's ponies and are also used by Mexican cowboys.

The Galiceno is a horse breed from Mexico, although not technically a horse in size. Despite that they never grow above 14hh (hands high), they are still always considered horses, not ponies.
