The Sanhe Horse got its name from an independent city in the province of Hebei, which borders the province of Inner Mongolia. Sanhe means "three rivers" in Chinese and where these three rivers meet, the best feed and pasture in China can be found. Most Mongolian horses and Sanhe horses come from the northeastern steppes of Hulun Buir and Xilin Gol, which are still considered first class pasture land and have a very well developed cattle breeding. This area is crossed by these three major rivers that bring life and food to the landscape.
