Swedish Ardennes

First introduced in 1837 it was bred from imported Belgian Ardennes crossed with the North Swedish horse. It is a compact, strong horse and stands low to the ground around about 15.2 to 16h.h. The Ardennes has become the dominant influence in the breed type. It is normally bay, brown, chestnut or black in colour and has active paces for such a heavy horse. The head is square and set on a heavily crested neck; the body is strong and well muscled; the limbs are short and strong, with muscular forearms and thighs, with plenty of bone and carrying some feather; the mane and tail are thick. The breed is known for a quiet kind temperament and though the numbers have decreased since mechanisation, it is still a popular farm worker in Sweden and the countries where it has been imported.
