About Zemaitukas HorsesAbout Zemaitukas Horses



Zemaituka horses (also known as Zamituka, Zemaichu, Zhemaichu, Zhmudk, or Zhmud) comes from Lithuania and are a forest type that is part of the Konik family.

They were bred in Lithuania since the 16th century and were used by local people for farming and transportation. Throughout the years they have been influenced by various other exotic types and more recently in the 19th century Arabian stock was added. By the start of the 20th century there were two distinct types within the breed, one lighter and more refined (though fewer in numbers) and a heavier animal without the Arabian refinement.

Once popular, the breed was brought to the brink of extinction by changing agricultural demands and World War II. In 2010, the total population was estimated at 400 individuals.
