north swedish horse

The North Swedish Horse has ancient origins, that are closely connected with those of its neighbour, the Dole from Norway. There has been a lot of cross breeding, and it was only after a breed society was established at the end of the 19th century that a more uniform type was produced. Dole stallions from Norway were used, and at the beginning of the 20th century stringent performance tests for breeding stock were introduced.

The North Swedish Horse is an active and tough horse that trots well and is similar to its near relative, the Dole. It is still used extensively by the Army and for forestry work.
