FrederiksborgAnd the winner of the Dream Horse Challenge is… the Frederiksborg horse (also called the Frederiksborger). Thank you to Rachel Danielle, who nominated the breed.

The Frederiksborg horse is a heavy, elegant horse from Denmark. They are always chestnut in color, normally with white markings. Their crested necks are topped by a clearly defined head, slightly convex. the shoulders are strong and sloping, giving the horse smooth gaits.

The horse was very popular in the Renaissance period, although it is almost extinct today. They are showy horses who have smooth gaits, the best of which is their trot. The breed was first recognized by King Frederik II. The Frederiksborg horse has Arab and Iberian blood in it, which attributes to their grace.
