The home of the Pottoks is based in the Pays-Basque Region. It is situated in the west of France and in the north of Spain. There is not much known about the Basque origin. Their language is not directly related with any other European language. Up until recently, the Basque has kept their own language and culture.

Today most of the Pottoks are still living free in the bask mountains. They live in the wilderness.The mountains make them tough and hardly. It helped them to survive in the early days and to continue to survive today under hard conditions. The great variety of use of this horse breed is a reverence of the adaptation ability.
