Wild horses on south langeland
The wild horses are partly on the large area near Dovns Klint in southern Langeland and on a smaller area by Klise Nor.
The area at the lazy Klint is so large that it sometimes may be difficult to see the horses.
The Exmoor ponies in Sydlangeland are called "wild", since they are allowed to live without human interference. The herd of approximately 50 horses lives in a big enclosure of 100 hectares throughout the year. The horses live as a wild herd without direct contact to humans and are therefore behaving naturally with a hierarchy among themselves. There are only very few places you have the opportunity to experience horses as herd animals with a lead stallion steering the flock. The horses are out all year, and find their own food.
