Freiberger for sale

The Freiberger is a Swiss riding horse. This practical warmblood breed was developed in the Jura region from the nineteenth century onward. Although the breed has undergone changes over the decades, it remains a sturdy, sure-footed horse, ideal for riding in the mountains, where it still has an important part to play. Various people today, from the Swiss Army to farmers in remote areas, still buy a Freiberger for its suitability in the demanding terrain of the Alps. These sensible riding horses have great stamina and endurance, both important qualities for working in steep upland areas. They have active paces too, making it a good proposition to sell a Freiberger for distance riding.

Use and characteristics of the Freiberger

Traditionally most Freibergers were chestnut, but today many are roan or grey. They stand 14.3 hands (45 inches/114 cm) to 15.2 hands (62 inches/157 cm) high. They still retain enough of their light draught qualities to be useful harness horses. In fact, the breed developed into several types, and so it is possible to buy a Freiberger of the old-style farm kind, although these useful all-rounders are increasingly rare. Most breeders today sell a Freiberger of the modern type, a versatile and handsome warmblood showing the influence of other European warmbloods as well as the Shagya Arabian. The breed has always been famed for its compact outline and great strength, meaning that it is often described as a light draught horse. Formerly it was also described as a light coldblood, although it is now usually designated a heavy warmblood.

Origin and history of breeding Freibergers

The local Jura coldblood breed, sometimes known as the Cheval de Jura and later the Franches-Montagnes, provided the foundation for the Freiberger breed. Crossbreeding the mares of this type with Thoroughbred and Anglo-Norman horses in the early 1800s produced a useful light draught and riding horse to be used on mountain farms. The Anglo-Norman stallions Vaillant, foaled in Switzerland in 1891, and Imprevu, who was imported into Switzerland in 1889, were particularly influential in the latter half of the nineteenth century. The use of diverse warmblood stallions produced several sub-types identified by their names, such as the Anglo-Jura for Thoroughbred crosses and Normand-Jura to show Anglo-Norman influence. Late in the century, the terms Franche-Montagnes and Freiberger began to be used collectively for the different types that had emerged in the districts of Franches-Montagnes, Porrentruy, and Delémont. Freibergers were greatly valued during both World Wars, when horses were the most efficient and effective choice of transport in mountain areas, just as they had been for centuries. Horses of Shagya Arabian type were also used, producing a more notably Arabian look to some of the heads of Freibergers today. From the 1970s to the 1990s, further changes were made to the breed using Swiss and Swedish warmbloods. The Freiberger studbook was closed in 1997 when the breed organisation, the Schweizerischer Freibergerverband (FM) / Fédération suisse d’élevage du cheval de la race des Franches-Montagnes (FSFM) was established. The name Franches-Montagnes became an official name at this time. The Federal Stud at Avenches is now the centre of breeding for Freiberger horses.

Freibergers in equestrianism

The Swiss army uses Freiberger horses for a range of activities in the mountains, including pack horse work, draught, and transporting artillery. Freibergers are still a good option for farms with steep slopes where tractors are risky to use. These sensible, calm animals are excellent horses for trekking and good family riding horses.
