They live in the wild, on the plateau known as Sa Jara Manna or Giara di Gesturi and are the only survivors of a species that roamed freely throughout the island until the late Middle Ages. A very short distance from the ‘grande giara’ (great giara), an exhibition space tells us about their history, life and coexistence with man. The little Giara horse is the absolute protagonist of the museum located in a typical Campidano house in Genoni, a village that emerged at the foot of a hill that became detached from the Giara due to erosion. You can observe the various stages of the entire life of the little horses, thanks to a special photo gallery. Two dedicated rooms will allow you to learn more about the environmental characteristics of the Giara and its relationship with the populations of the nearby towns. Also on display are the tools used in the past for taming, shoeing and branding, now replaced by the implantation of a microchip. You can then visit the ethnographic section, where agricultural tools, utensils used by carpenters and shepherds and objects of domestic and daily use in the traditional Campidano dwellings are on display along a thematic itinerary, accompanied by video interviews: the elderly village folk talk about agricultural and rural life through memories and anecdotes.
