Help us to protect the wild Giara horses

THE  WILD GIARA HORSES

The little wild Giara Horse (Equus caballus Jarae) or Cuaddeddu, in sardinian language, is one of the last wild horses in Europe.

It is found on a large basalt plateau, called Giara, a wild area in South Sardinia, Italy.

Its origins are uncertain. Some say it descend from Phoenician horse, some other say it was found in that area since nuragic times. However, fossils records show its presence in the Island since about 6.000 B.C. .

 

THREATS TO THE GIARA HORSES

Nowadays, the biggest threats to the Giara Horses are hunting, poaching, illegal grazing, fire.

 

WHAT WE DO TO HELP THE GIARA HORSES 

Our aim is to protect the little wild horses and let them ride free in their natural home: the Giara’s plateau.  In line with the spirit of our organization, we help the Giara horses by providing them food and water.
