"The Trakehner (or "East Prussian Warmblood Horse of Trakehner Origin," as it is correctly called), is the lightest of the modern European warmbloods.
Originally, the term Trakehner was reserved for horses bred at the stud farm in Trakehnen (now Yasnaya Polyana in Russia), where over two centuries the breed was refined and gained renown, first for use by the military and later in competition.
In the final months of WWII, the devastation of war nearly wiped out the Trakehner bloodline. Those committed to saving the majestic breed led the remaining horses on a grueling exodus across the frozen wastelands of Eastern Europe, a feat of endurance that would give the Trakehner a legendary reputation, but nearly wiped out the remaining stock.
After decades of careful breeding, the Trakehner was brought back from the brink of extinction. That discipline continues to this day as to be allowed into the official stud books, young horses undergo an extensive evaluation process to assess their qualities as riding horses.
Due to their high percentage of Thoroughbred genes, the Trakehner is an elegant horse, and is frequently used to refine other warmblood breeds.
Modern Trakehners are extremely successful in all areas of equestrian sports, especially eventing, where their versatility in both jumping and dressage makes them shine.
Riders looking for a majestic partner in the riding hall or a friend to conquer the toughest terrain, look no further than the Trakehner." - Star Stable Online
