Knabstruppers of Knight Equine
~A Rare Spotted Breed of Danish Warmblood~
We believe the Knabstrupper (properly pronounced as "Kah-nob-strooper") to be a special breed- truly versatile sporthorse that doesn't sacrifice quality for color and is a perfect fit for any level of rider.
"Knabstruppers are the ideal horses suitable for an amateur rider with their easy going natures, yet good enough for a professional because of their ability. Due to their outstanding movements, which are powerful, but easy to be controlled they are also used for therapeutic work. The breed is used not only for leisure and hobby riding but also for the most advanced equestrian disciplines including dressage, eventing, show jumping, hunt seat, and Houte Ecole."
-Bent Branderup, 'Knabstruppers'
'Knight Equine' is absolutely committed to further establishing (and maintaining) the Knabstrupper breed here in the United States, and are in the process of building a broodmare band consisting of Danish & German (KNN, Zfpd, RPSI) Mainbook Knabstruppers, of which will be offered to the public through embryo flushes and in-utero (predominately colt) options with the ability to customize each option by choosing both the mare and the stallion.
Due to the nature of our program, where the majority of our sales are based on custom breedings, we will rarely have any on-the-ground horses available (outside of the occasional colt from our personal breedings). Riding leases will however be available on many of our Knabstruppers as our herd grows.
