Konik Horse


Did you know……

The Konik has also been introduced into nature reserves in other nations. One of the first  area where the Konik has been introduced are the Oostvaardersplassen in the Netherlands. In 1995, a herd was released in de Kleine Weerd, a strip of land along the river Meuse near Maastricht. The area is open to the public, but people are advised not to go near the horses because their reactions are unpredictable. Following the success of this program, Koniks were also brought to Latvia and to the United Kingdom.
