Meet Germany’s stunning and endangered “Black Forest” horses

The magnificent golden mane of Black Forest horses complements their chestnut coat.

The historical records indicate this kind of horse, which has evolved through the years in the southwest of Germany.
Unfortunately, they are currently in danger of being extinct.
Meet the beautiful and rare “Black Forest” horses of Germany.

About 80 stallions and 1,000 mares were documented in the archive in 2017 alone.

But due to their careful breeding, a rise in numbers is anticipated in the near future.

Many people have dedicated their entire lives to saving this species of horses from extinction.

Although they are fairly robust and free-spirited, they are not as strong as our typical horses.

Despite having a great deal of physical strength, they are nevertheless kind and patient.

Their growth ranges from 14.3 to 16 hands on average.

For those making their first forays into riding, Black Forest horses are the ideal choice.
Their generosity benefits newcomers to this industry. Most commonly used for riding, but also for riding in carriages.
