The Frederiksborg Horse

- Denmark’s oldest national horse breed

Breeding today

Today’s breeding is still carried out on a private basis, and the breeders are organised in the Frederiksborg Horse Breeder Association, which has about 400 members.

There are currently about 2000 registered Frederiksborg Horses, of which about 200 mares and 40 stallions are used for breeding each year, and just under 100 foals are born each year.

Within the latest decade, there has been renewed interest in the breed, including from other countries, which means that there are now Frederiksborg Horses in several Scandinavian and European countries, and a few as far away as the USA and Australia.
