[ INDEX ] Equine Type: Horse Breed: Sumba Pony (Sumba)   [ PREV ] [ NEXT ]
The Sumba is an Indonesian pony breed, which was created out of Mongolian and Chinese stocks. The Sumba Pony is bred in Sumba Island, and should not to be confused with the Sumbawa Pony, which is a different Indonesian breed (see the 'Sumbawa Pony.')

Sumba ponies have large heads, short necks, and long backs, and are almost identical in appearance to the Sumbawa Pony, though the latter is a bit smaller in size. Sumba ponies have light gaits, natural agility, and an intelligent mind. Today, they are primarily used for traditional dancing, and for lance-throwing.

Sumba Ponies are usually bay-dun in color, but brown-dun, red-dun, and grulla coats can be found as well. Non-dun horses usually exhibit primitive markings, though in rare cases they may lack these markings. The average height of Sumba ponies is 12hh, and in Horse Isle they stand between 11.2 and 12.2hh.
