Finley will contribute to the conservation of species diversity on the semi-open grassland in Bremen's Werderland nature reserve and the endangered Dülmener horse breed. The use of horses for landscape maintenance is becoming increasingly important. The Dülmener horse was originally kept all year round under the open sky in the wild horse track in the Merfelder Bruch. Due to the semi-wild keeping, this robust horse breed is very well adapted to the environmental conditions in Germany. That is why the Dülmener horse is increasingly used on nature and landscape protection areas, e. g. in the Wuhletal in Berlin, in the Lüneburg Heath and now also in Bremen’s Werderland. Throughout Germany, the use of Dülmener horses is still expandable.
