The Welara is an American pony breed, with a registry established in 1981. Popular in Southern California, the breed has a longer history, dating to the 1920s, when Lady Wentworth of the Crabbet Arabian Stud in England began breeding her Arabian stallion Skowronek to Welsh pony mares imported from the Coed Coch stud in North Wales.
