This breed is believed to have ancient origins, with a history dating back thousands of years to the Celts that inhabitant the region. They are considered one of the oldest horse breeds in Galicia and in the world. These sturdy and resilient horses have also been an integral part of the rural communities in Galicia and Northern Portugal, serving as working horses in agricultural activities and transportation.
