Freiberg Breeding Community

Until registries are in place the Breeding Communities forum will be for players to work together towards creating or improving their favourite breeds.
Forum rules
Each breed may have only one topic. The first post in the topic is to be informative. It should help explain the breed, and breeding goals; advice on how to select mares and stallions; and links to ideal Stallions available for breeding.
Keeping a directory of breeders working on the same goal is also helpful.
All new threads must be approved.

Breed History

The Freiberg horse originated in Switzerland. It has English Thoroughbred, Breton, Arabian, Anglo-Norman and Belgian Draft blood. The breed was used extensively by the Swiss army, especially during both World Wars. The heavier type is used for transport and agriculture, but since machines have taken over most work that the horse used to do, the lighter type of Freiberg used for riding is more extensively bred.
