Loudly colored in a leopard pattern, Knabstrupper horses wear spotted coats all year long. In 1812, the Knabstrupper breed began with Flaeb's mare, also known as Flaebehoppen, who was bred at Knabstrupgaard in Denmark after a series of purchases. Known for being loud in color, Knabstruppers were highly sought after in Europe. Eventually being bred with Appaloosas, this step ensured less inbreeding and success in the reestablishment of Knabstruppers. Divided into three different types, Knabstruppers are typified as Pony, Baroque, and Sport, each with their own individual strengths. All Knabstruppers are prized for their health and kind temperament. Fun Facts: The Knabstrupper is among the oldest of breeds registered in Europe. Zoological Name: Equus ferus. Conservation Status: Domesticated. Global Home: Worldwide.
