The Pottok is a primitive breed from the Basque region of southern France, and is one of the most ancient equine breeds still in existence.

Pottoks have lived in the Pyrenees Mountains since their ancestors arrived at the Basque region during the last Ice Age. Over thousands of years they developed into sturdy, small ponies, with strong hooves and excellent endurance. Today, these sturdy ponies, who still roam freely in the mountains, are called "Mountain Pottoks", and comprise one subtype of the Pottok pony. Mountain Pottoks were used as pack ponies and pit ponies for many years, and it was only in the second half of the 20th century when they started to serve as riding ponies as well.

Today, all Mountain Pottok ponies have owners, and are popular as riding ponies for kids. They are usually bay, chestnut, and black, and have either a solid form or a tobiano pattern. They stand between 11.1hh and 14.2hh.
