American Knabstrupper Association

There are three types of Knabstrupper: Sporthorse, Baroque, and Pony (14.2hh or smaller). Must have at least one parent who is registered Knabstrupper. The other parent must be either a Knabstrupper or a horse of an acceptable outcross.

Acceptable Sporthorse Type Outcrosses:
Danish Oldenburg
Danish Warmblood
Pure Arabian
Anglo Arabian

Acceptable Baroque Type Outcrosses:

Acceptable Knabstrupper Pony Outcrosses:
New Forest Pony
Welsh Pony (no Welsh Cobs)
Connemara Pony
Danish Sports Pony
Dartmoor Pony
Shetland Ponies
Miniature Horse

grey or pinto horses are not eligible. And in 2011 the Knabstrupper Association for Denmark ruled that only chestnut, bay, or black horses are eligible for registration. In turn I will now only allow dilute colored foals to be born prior to this year.

**We use the suffix “Vom Donnertal” on many of our Knabstruppers and encourage it’s use when choosing one of our mares**
