Larni was supposed to be my horse of a life time, my dressage horse. After a short lived competitive career she was diagnosed with navicular in her left fore. I have tried to get her back to full ridden work but it's clear that is not in Larnis best interests. At the moment she is barefoot as I have found this has helped her the most. I'm sure with a bit of time and patience she would be able to be lightly hacked but this would have to be introduced very slowly as she's not been ridden for a while.

Is the horse in work?

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    Ideally someone who can offer 24/7 turn out all year round as Larni really benefits from this type of lifestyle. Someone who wants to have a really lovable horse to spend time with (prefers people to horses) who has the time and patience to spend getting her back into light hacking work. Larni is very easy to keep, has no behavioural issues and is very sensible (whether ridden once a year or once a week she doesn't change) but would like someone experienced mainly due to her soundness issues.

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

Excellent!!

Please describe your horses behaviour when hacking out alone and in company

Larni hacks alone and in company. Alone she may be a bit "looky" but nothing a competant rider can't deal with easily (bit of leg!!) In company she is excellent, doesn't get hot or fizzy, happy to be in front or at the back.

Details of any individual behavioural traits which may influence the type of person best suited to take on the horse

Larni's only fault is she can be a bit bolshy in hand/ on the ground but nothing serious and a headcollar with a chain usually keeps her in check.

Larni is not able to do anything other than light hack. No schooling, jumping, cross country, hunting, intensive work etc.

Explanation whether this horse is simply a good doer or whether he is prone to laminitis

Knabstrupper Horse

The Knabstrup or Knabstrupper is a European horse breed with an unusual range of coat coloration. It shows the same color pattern as the Appaloosa, with coat patterns ranging from solid, through many variants to the full leopard spotted. Leopard Spotting is the most prized color pattern. It has warmblood comformation.

Knabstrup color:

  • The Knabstrupper horse exhibits various color patterns. The most popular color pattern is the leopard with its solid white background covered with black, bay, or chestnut spots. Other patterns include the blanket, the snowflake, the snowcap, and the “few spot,” an almost solid white horse that, when bred, always produces a foal with a spotted pattern of some kind. However, some Knabstruppers are born with solid colors, such as bay, chestnut, or gray.

Knabstrup size:

  • The average height of Knabstrup is 15.1 to 16 hands high, but there are also pony sized ones with height under 14.2 hands high.

Knabstrup temperament:

  • Knabstruppers are valued for their kind temperaments, high level of trainability, strength, stamina and good health as well as for their wonderful color.

Knabstrup life expectancy:

  • Knabstrup usually live from 20 to 35 years.

Knabstrup origin:

Believed to have originated from the prehistoric spotted horses of Spain, the Knabstrupper is one of the oldest breed registries in Europe. Established in 1812, the Knabstrupper started with a single chestnut blanketed mare purchased by a Danish butcher named Flaeb from a Spanish cavalry officer. The mare, who became known as Flaebehoppen (which literally means "Flaeb’s mare"), was purchased by Major Villars Lunn who owned an estate called “Knabstrupgaard” in Holbaek, Nordsealand, Denmark. Flaeb’s mare was bred to a Fredricksborg stallion and produced a wildly colored stallion son who was named Flaebehingsten. Between the two of them, Flaebehoppen and Flaebehingsten were bred to a large variety of good quality horses, producing loudly colored offspring and grand offspring and establishing the Knabstrupper horses as some of the most sought after in Europe at that time.
