The British Spotted Pony is a small pony breed originating in England. It has existed for several centuries. The main distinguishing feature of the breed is its leopard-spotted colouration. The height at withers varies greatly between 8 hands (32 inches 81 cm) and 14.2 hands (58 inches 147 cm). An even larger horse-type variant existed but is nowadays considered to belong into the Appaloosa breed.
