Breed Released: February 15, 2008 Found On: Grass
The oldest breed in Denmark, the Frederiksborg was a very popular breed through the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries. So many were exported that very few were left in Denmark causing the original breed to almost disappear. Though some private breeders kept the Frederiksborg alive, Thoroughbred blood was increasingly used, which probably means very little of the original breed is left. Previously used as a carriage and war charger, the Frederiksborg is now a great riding horse. This breed averages 15.3hh.
