Welcome to the North American Tarpan Association
Lost in the misty memory of Eastern Europe, the ancient Tarpan vanished so quietly that it's passing was hardly noticed. Then, through the efforts and expertise of German Zoologist Heinz Heck, a new horse emerged from the grey haze of history, to remind us of the beauty of what we had lost. In the process, a unique little horse was created.
The NATA's mandate is to preserve this Tarpan, to promote it's endearing traits of gentleness, strength and hardiness, and to protect it's complex and fascinating history.
We're very excited to showcase this wonderful horse, and to help you understand more about it. Let it fire your imagination!
