Ponies were small horses and were a comparably smaller breed of riding animal than horses.

Given their smaller size, ponies were good for smaller jobs and tasks and thus were suitable for Hobbits to ride.

Bill was the only named pony in the whole of Tolkien mythology.

Ponies in The Hobbit

Ponies were ridden and used for the baggage by Thorin and Company throughout their journey to the Lonely Mountain, of which some were lost and granted by others such as Beorn. Bilbo made the use of one strong pony to carry his modest share of the reward promised to him for services rendered on the Quest.
