About Swedish Ardennes HorsesAbout Swedish Ardennes Horses



Swedish Ardennes horses were developed in Sweden when thernCount C.G. Wrangle brought large Ardennes horses to the country in 1872. Byrn1880 most parts of south and central Sweden had imported or crossed Ardennes.rnThese heavier horses were bred with the horse of the Swedish countryside. Thernresulting horse was very mobile and marked by longevity. So successful was thernbreeding effort that a stud book was opened in 1901.rnrn rnrn 

rnrnFor years, the wild horse population of Sweden wasrnindiscriminately crossed with other imported breeds. Even when studs beganrnfocusing their breeding efforts, however, horses were chosen more for theirrnouter looks than well examined conformation standards. By 1874, this had allrnchanged and examinations were required for a horse of Swedish Warmblood,rnSwedish Ardennes, and North Swedish Horse stock to be entered into a stud book.rnrn 

rnrnThey stand around 15 to 16 hands high; they are a mediumrnbuilt heavy draft breed. Although not exactly distinguished, the horse morernthan makes up for this lack through their good health, longevity, and sweetrntemper. Their head is heavy with a smallish eye. Their neck is short and thick.rnTheir back is short, their chest wide, and their shoulders are well muscled.
