SMALL BATCH BREWS FROM LLANDUDNO
Wild Horse HQ is only a few miles from Conwy mountain and the neighbouring Carneddau mountains of Snowdonia. This area is home to what is believed to be the only truly wild population of horses in the UK. These horses have been roaming these hills for centuries and thanks to their hardiness and the endeavours of generations of local hill farmers, the population has survived to this day.
Interestingly, in Tudor times, King Henry VIII ordered the feral native ponies to be destroyed, because they could not carry a knight in full armour. More recently in 2013, a study by Aberystwyth University revealed that the horses are a genetically distinct population, confirming the population has been isolated for at least the last several hundred years.
