mongolian horse

The exact origins of the breed are hard to determine. Riding horses are documented with the nomads of the central Asian steppes since 2000 BC. Tests have shown, that among all horse breeds, Mongolian horses feature the largest genetic variety, followed by the tuwinian horses. This indicates that it is a very archaic breed suffering little human induced selection. The data also indicate that many other breeds descend from the Mongolian horses.

The Mongolian horse is the native horse breed of Mongolia and the Mongol people, and the breed is purported to be largely unchanged since the time of Genghis Khan. Nomads living in the traditional Mongol fashion still hold more than 3 million animals, outnumbering the country's human inhabitants. Despite the small size, Mongolians reject the term "ponies".
