The Tale of the Przewalski's Horse - Coming Home to Mongolia

Příběh koně převalského - návrat do mongolsé domoviny

For tens of thousands of years wild horses roamed over the grasslands of Europe and Asia. Their endurance and agility made them the perfect partner for man during his conquest of the world. The loss of importance of the domesticated horses for the cavalries of the world coincided with the disappearance of the last horses from the wild. Around 1900 some wealthy collectors rushed to the edge of the Gobi desert to catch a few specimen from the last marginalised groups of the proud horse that scientists baptised the Przewalski’s horse, after the Polish explorer who had discovered them.
