Ce type de potin est traditionnellement attribué aux Helvètes ; c’est l’un des deux types de potin helvètes.

Ces potins sont encore mal connus, mais certains exemplaires ont un trait horizontal joignant les deux jambes du cheval, d’autres ont des globules au-dessus de la queue.

Les auteurs du Nouvel Atlas précisent que “les provenances de ce type se situent essentiellement en Suisse de l'Ouest et du Nord-Ouest”.
