The traditional Nokota is a subtype of the Nokota horse. This subtype is regarded as the original form of the Nokota horse because it underwent less crossbreeding, and therefore its conformation is similar to that of the Nokota's Spanish ancestors.

The authentic Nokota:
Traditional Nokotas descend from the Spanish horses that were bred by Native American tribes in North Dakota in the 19th century. During the 1940s, most of the wild herds of Nokota horses were destroyed, and by the 1960s all of the wild herd were gone except for a few herds that were accidentally enclosed in Theodore Roosevelt National Park.

Saved from extinction:
The traditional Nokotas who roamed in the park were allowed to breed with horses of other breeds, as well as with non-traditional Nokotas, Therefore, the population of the traditional Nokota shrunk overtime, and this unique subtype was at the risk of extinction.

Luckily, the traditional Nokota was eventually saved by the Kuntz brothers, who bought the Nokota horses that were auctioned by Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Out of all of the Nokota horses that the Kuntz brothers bought from the park, only twenty were traditional Nokotas. Nevertheless, the Kuntz brother set a specific breeding program for these unique horses, and managed to increase their herd of 'traditional' Nokotas.

Today, a herd of Traditional Nokotas can still be found in the Nokota Conservacy.
