She is beautiful inside and outside with a lovely, lively character. Although she can only do light hacking she is still a lovely forward ride. Previous to her injury she had just started competing in dressage and had won every time out, so is nicely schooled. She is a pleasure to be with and to handle

    I use a comfort bridle and a working hunter saddle. She is normally in a loose ring snaffle but can get strong so then I use a 3 ring snaffle. Her tack will be available to buy

Relevant health or lameness issues

She has been rested on and off since she was 5 when she suddenly stopped wanting to work. I have brought her back into work slowly and correctly each time but every time we reach a certain level she becomes uncomfortable. With the vets advice it was decided to retire her to just light hacking which I have been doing approx 5 days a week with no problem. She can't canter for too long and not too much hillwork. During one of her rest periods she was kicked in the field and broke her splint bone

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

The vet and I are in agreement that she can only be a light hack. He feels that it is a sacroiliac problem. She also broke a splint bone 2 yrs ago which was removed at Newmarket. It has healed well and shouldn't cause any problem

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

We are fortunate to have very quiet roads to hack on so I have no experience of her with heavier traffic. What we do meet she is fine with

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

She is good to hack alone or in company but I prefer hacking alone on her because she is brighter. If I hack with others I like to be in front as she can switch off a bit otherwise

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

I have enjoyed spoiling her so she does think she is special! It would be nice for her if she could go to someone who would enjoy carrying that on as I think she has a wonderful character

Details of the activities that the horse must not participate in due to previous injury

She can only be a light hack. I do light schooling whilst hacking but she can't do a lot of circling. I have occasionally popped a small log ,when i come across them, and she enjoys that. She can only do short canters

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

She is a very good doer.

Details of any problems when being ridden

Has occasionally napped but nothing nasty. She just stops and just needs a bit of encouragement to keep going. Has not napped for months now. I think that as she has had so much time off she is still quite young in her outlook. She can get excited with new experiences, but this never lasts long and she has never bucked or reared with me on her. She has been back in work since January

Horse vaccinated annually for flu and tetanus

Yes

Need to be stabled at night?

Yes, all year round

Need to be put on restricted grazing to limit weight gain?

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.
