Manipuri Pony comes from Manipur, India. It's an old breed, thousands of years old even if its ancestry is not very well-known. Probably their ancestors are the Mongolian and Tibetan ponies but also some Arabian crossings have been made. Manipuris are the original polo ponies. Manipur is quite small, some 110-132 cm at withers and it's fairly lightly-built, even elegant. Usually they're bays and chestnuts, but also other colors, such as tobiano, gray, and perhaps palomino, may occur.

A mid-18th-century palampore created for the European market. While such designs may well have originated in England and then sent to India as a template, Ms. Smith notes, the Indians made them all their own.
