The Konik is originally a semi-wild breed of horse kept in Poland and Belarus
Koń is Polish for horse, konik (konjiek) for horse. The Konik is often said to be related to the Tarpan, an extinct wild horse from Eastern Europe.
The Konik is small (pony size) and can be recognized by its wild color pattern. The Konik needs little to no care and can stay outside all year. For this reason, the animal is used to graze natural areas.
The Konik is a semi-wild horse and is hugely hardy, which is why we chose the Key ring for Equestrian in the color bronze as a look-a-like.
