Use and characteristics of the Freiberger
Traditionally most Freibergers were chestnut, but today many are roan or grey. They stand 14.3 hands (45 inches/114 cm) to 15.2 hands (62 inches/157 cm) high. They still retain enough of their light draught qualities to be useful harness horses. In fact, the breed developed into several types, and so it is possible to buy a Freiberger of the old-style farm kind, although these useful all-rounders are increasingly rare. Most breeders today sell a Freiberger of the modern type, a versatile and handsome warmblood showing the influence of other European warmbloods as well as the Shagya Arabian. The breed has always been famed for its compact outline and great strength, meaning that it is often described as a light draught horse. Formerly it was also described as a light coldblood, although it is now usually designated a heavy warmblood.
