Short summary
Special nature reserves are created in Europe to replicate its prehistoric past, i.e. to rewild the area, by populating it with the kinds of animals (e.g. tarpans) that lived there many thousands of years ago. The Polish Konik is the only primitive horse breed originating directly from wild tarpans. Researchers have aimed at understanding the biology of Polish Konik horses for years. Our study showed that different factors such as season, habitat, and time of the day affect their mobility.
