Trakehner Horses are extremely courageous, spirited yet calm, affectionate toward people, tough, and full of quality. Resembling a light to middle weight Thoroughbred or, occasionally, Anglo Arab, they epitomize all that is required in a quality riding horse without the sometimes difficult temperament of the Thoroughbred. The Trakehner should be treated as a Thoroughbred. It is relatively easy to handle and is rewarding to own and ride. The Trakehner has come through difficult times to shine as the performance and competition horse par excellence. It is exported and bred all over the world, and is often used in preference to the Thoroughbred or Arab to bring lightness and quality to other breeds due to its established type, athletic abilities, and equable temperament. The colors of the Trakehner are brown, bay, chestnut, and black. Gray occurs rarely, and roans are never seen.Trakehner Horses stand about 16 hands high.
