In a world full of solid colored warmbloods, the Knabstrupper is the eclectic cousin of the bunch. From the same spanish bloodlines as the appaloosa, they are found displaying all of the appaloosa white patterns.



The breed started when a spotted mare named Flaebe (probably of Spanish descent) was purchased from a butcher by the Villars Lunn who owned the Knabstrupgaard manor. Although her origins are unknown, her beautiful spotted coat and extreme endurance earned her.

Every one of Flaebe’s foals displayed spotted coats and one went on to become the flagship stud for the Knabstrupper breed
