Knabstrupper horses were bred in Denmark as far back as 1671 when there was a popular stud called "The Tiger Horses". In 1750 this royal breeding line came to an end. The spotted horse returned in 1812, not with the "Tiger Horses" but with a new bloodline. A mare was purchased of Spanish origin with unusual markings. This mare was covered by a Frederiksborg Stallion in 1813 and had a colt. It was that colt that was the foundation Sire for the new spotted breed.
