The Nokota® Horses

Friday, April 26
Saturday, April 27
Sunday, April 28
Horse Barn Ring 2:00-2:30

Join Frank Kuntz, co-founder of the Nokota Horse Conservancy®, to learn about and meet several historic Nokota® horses. Today’s Nokotas® are descended from generations of wild horses that lived in the rugged LIttle Missouri Badlands in western North Dakota. Their ancestors include Native American horses and frontier ranch horses. A century of natural survival pressures selected for the phenotype we observe today that is true to the original type of the Indian horses of the Northern Plains. Recent research has provided some surprising and intriguing clues about the possible origins of these remarkable survivors, now numbering fewer than 1000 world-wide.

The Nokota Horse Conservancy® founder, Frank Kuntz, will present an overview of the history of the Nokota® horses and will discuss their conformation, attributes and disciplines using several ambassadors of the breed and their owners. Presentation will be followed by a question and answer session where audience members can learn more about the Conservancy's efforts to save this rare breed.
