Pottok horses originate from the Basque region of France. They have been in demand for quite some time and are considered one of thernthree main native horse breeds. Their history comes from the Magdalenian typesrnof horses, which were dated all the way back to seven thousand B.C. They werernonce considered a very wild horse but have since become domesticated.

rnrnJust as their popularity began to grow, they were hurt byrnthe high demand for horses that were larger for agricultural purposes. Expertsrnbelieve that at some point there were only a mere 150 Pottok horses left. Howeverrntoday yhey are popular due to a gentile nature. They have been featured inrnfilms and have also been serving as a mascot for a rugby team.rnrn rnrn
