Knabstrup Horses

A quality riding horse, the Knabstrup is intelligent, perceptive, tractable, and easy to handle. The Knabstrup is used for general riding and showing in breed classes. Because of its spotted coat, it is in demand for circus work. There is nothing Oriental or refined in the Knabstrup, but today's horse remains solid and dependable;
a comfortable ride. A wide variety of different spots and splashes on a white or roan background. Some, however, still show the all over spotting of the old Knabstrup. The mane and tail are sparse. Knabstrup Formerly a victim of breeding almost entirely for eye catching color and markings, the Knabstrup is now bred more judiciously and makes good middle weight riding horse. Due to its coloring, it is still in demand for circus work. Horses stand from 15.2 to 15.4 hands high.
