By tradition, the Kathiawari is thought to have been first bred in the 14th century, crossing native ponies, Arabians, and other oriental breeds. There is a legend that shipwrecked Arabians swam to shore and bred with local ponies. Others believe that Arabians and other oriental breeds were shipped to India during the reign of the Mughal emperors and deliberately crossed with local breeds.

The Kathiawari is a breed of horse from India, specifically originating in the Kathiawar peninsula. The horses, although small, are not [[pony|ponies]. They are between 14.2 and 15 hands high. They can be dun, chestnut, bay, tobiano pinto, and sabino pinto and any of the cream dilutions, including palomino, buckskin, cremello, perlino, and smoky cream. Roan, champagne, frame and splash overo, and the Appaloosa pattern are not found in the breed.
