... energy and nerve!
The Aegidienberger is a gaited horse hailing from Germany and became officially recognized as a breed of horse at the end of the 20th century.
The Aegidienberger was developed by a cross between the elegant Peruvian Paso and the pure blood of the hardy Icelandic horse, combined to create a larger gaited animal. The goal of the breed is to create a more elegant horse, who is more adapted to our clima than the Icelandic Horse.
Both breeds bring unique characteristics to the Aegidienberger. Icelandic horses contribute their strength and ability to with stand the elements. The Paso provides size and a refined elegance to confirmation.
The resulting animal is also gifted with the tölt gait.
The Aegidenberger stands at least 13 hands high, and can reach up to 15 hands.
