Vyatka description

They are extremely useful and versatile ponies and have stamina, hardiness and endurance. They are used for riding and driving and are commonly used for pulling the traditional troikas; they are also useful for light agricultural work.

In appearance, they have a small head, set onto a strong, thick neck. They are very powerful through the shoulders, deep through the girth and have muscular quarters. Invariably the Vyatka has a luxurious mane and tail, and in winter grows an incredibly thick coat.

Vyatka history

They originated in the areas around Vyatka and Obva river basins of the former USSR and have probably been influenced by both the Klepper and Konik ponies, while almost certainly being a descendant of the Tarpan.

Vyatka fun facts

No stud breeds the Vyatka. The breed needs protection.

By the first half of the 19th century it became the best troika horse in Russia.
