The Quarter Pony is essentially a smaller version of the Quarter Horse & stems from animals that didn’t meet the American Quarter Horse Association’s height requirement.

Although the height requirement was later phased out, the development of the Quarter Pony continued and they have become very popular pony mounts in the US. Essentially any stock type pony that is under 14.2 can be registered, although the breed favors those with Quarter Horse blood.
