Sumba is famous for its horses – the local breed is the best in Indonesia! Sumba pony is a well-known ‘brand’ these days: these quick, athletic animals descended from Mongolian Horses and ancient Chinese stock. A closely related breed also developed in Sumba and Sumbawa is the Sandalwood Pony, which came from crossing the native ponies on horses of Arabian breeding.
At the sunset time at the beach you can watch local boys riding their ponies barefoot and bareback, same as their grand-grandpas used to do.
