    The Knabstrup is a very old breed, but very new in the United States. I think the first registry here was accomplished in 2001. check out this website, the American Knabstrupper Association, for more information.

I have just added a Arabian x Percheron, 19 yr, old, gelding. I have to say that he is the most handsome horse I have seen and most websites don't say that they are good at dressage, but my horse is. It may be the arabian side of him.

I have a Connemara mare, she is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I would recommend a Connemara for a novice, as they are very good riding ponies. Mine (Meg), is a very quick learn and has a good balance, she learns very quickly and i'd rather have her than a thoroughbred:)

I have had my Fjord gelding almost 2 years. He is a character---and very lazy. His ground manners are excellent. He is stubborn and willful but after some convincing alot of fun. This was my horse of choice after not riding for many years. I am not sorry. The only problem is, he is always the star and the center of attention wherever we go. I must try to ride up to his elegant beauty. Stable and calm, a real rock when around horses that are acting up. Quite a guy.

As the owner of Arabians as well as Morgans I must say I get tired of all the snide comments about Arabs being difficult to handle, tending to run 'hot' etc., etc. As with all animals, HOW they are handled by people makes all the difference. You spend enough time out trail riding for proper conditioning, believe me, the shying will cease once they have experienced running rabbits, bobcats and snakes. Spend enough arena time with lungeline as well as under saddle and behaviors will improve. BOTH are needed for any horse to be fully rounded and properly trained, and it has to be constant, not once a week or month. For endurance, elegance, intelligence, and personality the Arab and Morgan can't be beat. And both breeds are easy keepers. Never have had problems keeping weight on either except shortly after foaling.

    forgot to mention; both of my horses (Dolly and Erin) would come when called from out the pasture. I had boarded my Erin and the owner of the stable could not understand how I got her to come to me. I told him I loved her and she knew it; I never treated her w/ harshness; was patient and never frightened her. Got her when she was 6 mos old from my mom; she was waiting for me when I got home from college one spring. Trained her to halter, saddle, bridle, and finally rode her when she turned 3 years old. This man was impatient; punched his horses in their noses and couldn't understand why every single one of them was headshy; hated that stable but it was the only one close enough to me so I could be w/ her twice a day. Dolly came to me when she was 12 and she was the sweetest thing; could jump a fence like a hunter. Good thing we lived waaaaayyyy out in the country then and no where near any kind of paved road. She just wanted to be w/ us and would jump the fence and come to the house. Our cats would lie on her back; too funny.

I acquired two Arabian geldings, one 17 and one 20. I love them both dearly and respect the pride they have in them, the energy is amazing. The 20 year old is underweight so I started him on beet pulp pellets and a pelletized sweet feed with cracked corn, also added vitamin supplement. Hoping he gains the weight back. Calling a vet to come check him soon, will see what he advises.
