The Frederiksborger, one of the oldest breeds of Baroque horse, and the Knabstrupper that later evolved from it are both under threat of extinction, but have been rediscovered in recent years by many leisure riders. Bent Branderup, who has been concerned for years with preserving both breeds, tells exciting and entertaining tales from the history of these horses and goes into detail about the stallion and mare lines that still exist today, to give readers a clear understanding of the linage of today’s horses. Bent Branderup also deals with the nature and uses of the breeds, giving plenty of practical advice for owners of these horses. He does not want to just present facts, but to bring the spirit of the breed alive and make it tangible for the reader.
