The Spiti Pony originated in the Himalayan region of India, and today is bred in the Spiti Valley of Himachal Pradesh. It is similar to the Bhutia Pony and the native Tibetan Pony, as these animals have been interbred for years so that many of the individual characteristics have been lost, and are now all categorized as "Indian Country Bred."
The ponies are kept mainly for work, mainly as pack ponies and sometimes for riding, to which their stamina and endurance serves them well. They generally have a willing and quiet temperament, although a few may be less-reliable.
