Frederiksborg - horses for sale
Frederiksborg horses are members of a Danish breed with a long and noble history. Once some of the most famous horses in Europe, they were much in demand by royalty and nobility due to their elegance and versatility. Indeed, their huge success almost led to their downfall, since so many of them were exported from Denmark that the breed went into decline in its homeland. Equestrians buying a Frederiksborg today have chosen a willing, hardworking breed that excels as a harness horse. They are very popular in Denmark once more, and most people who sell a Frederiksborg will be breed specialists and enthusiasts.

Use and characteristics of the Frederiksborg
Frederiksborgs, also known as Frederiksborger horses, are very attractive animals, almost invariably chestnut in colour. They often have flaxen manes and tails and white markings on their legs and face. Standing 15.1 hands (61 inches/155 cm) to 16.1 hands (65 inches/165 cm) high, they have the powerful neck, shoulders and chest required of heavy harness or light draught horses. They are elegant too, and people increasingly buy a Frederiksborg for riding as well as harness work. Since some of their ancestors were high school horses used by the aristocracy, it’s perhaps not surprising that there’s a lot of interest whenever breeders sell a Frederiksborg.
