Jeju pony, a natural monument no. 347 living in Jeju Island, Korea, has been conserved as a genetic resource and a racing pony. A total of 125 studies written about this breed have been published in various fields, primarily animal science (106), veterinary medicine (13), and others (6), from 1961 to 2018. Specifically, the majority of studies have been published in animal breeding and genetics (84), which are subcategories in the field of animal science. However, most of the research in breeding and genetics for Jeju pony were performed in the early 2000s, and studies using recently developed techniques are inferior to other breeds (thoroughbred etc.). Our current understanding of both the conservation and utilization of the breed is still incomplete. Thus, it is important to use recently developed technologies to improve management and breeding strategies for this pony breed. In this study, we review studies on Jeju ponies in the field of animal breeding and genetics and discuss problems that need to be addressed. Reviewed studies were divided into 6 categories: systematic classification, coat color, body measurement and growth, racing performance, behavior, and effective population size. Finally, we suggest ideas for future research projects that could potentially contribute to the Jeju pony industry.
