Knabstrupper Horses

Knabstrupper horses were bred in Denmark as far back as 1671 when they were called “The Tiger Horses.” In 1750, this royal breeding line came to an end. The spotted horse returned in 1812, not as the “Tiger Horses,” but with a new bloodline. A mare was purchased of Spanish origin with unusual markings. She was covered by a Frederiksborg Stallion in 1813 and had a colt. The colt was the foundational Sire for the new spotted breed.
