The Aegidienberger is a relatively recent cross, one that utilizes the elegant Peruvian Paso & the pure blood of the hardy Icelandic horse. The aim was to create a larger gaited animal that is well suited to the colder climates of Germany.


The first cross was bred by Walter Feldmann & his son Walter Junior. They wanted an attractive, gaited animal that was good under saddle & robust enough to withstand harsh weather. The breed was officially recognized in 1994 & a studbook created. However there have never been high numbers bred & there are fewer than 100 registered animals at any time.
