About Vyatka HorsesAbout Vyatka Horses



Vyatka horses have been in danger of extinction for several years. They originated in the areas around Vyatka and Obva river basins of the former USSR and have probably been influenced by both Klepper and Konik ponies, while almost certainly being a descendant of the Tarpan.    

They are extremely useful and versatile ponies and have stamina, hardiness, and endurance. They are used for riding and driving and are commonly used for pulling the traditional troikas; they are also useful for light agricultural work. They have an excellent willing and honest temperament which makes them easy to handle.  

In appearance, they have a wide forehead, small, clean cut head, set onto a strong, thick, fleshy neck. They are very powerful through the shoulders, deep through the girth and have muscular quarters. The mane and tail are thick and in winter they grow an extremely thick coat. The Vyatka are usually chestnut, bay roan, or dun with a dorsal stripe and sometimes zebra markings on the legs. They also have a darker colored grid-like patch that is on their shoulders. Their height ranges from 13 to 14.2 hands high.
