Which animal is part of the sport of polo?

Horses are an integral part of playing polo. Typically the horses are smaller, and in the past only ponies (horses that are less than 58 inches) were allowed to compete, but now there are no size limitations. Polo players still prefer smaller horses, though, because they have to be fast and swift. Arabians and Quarter Horses are especially popular among polo players.
