About North Swedish Horses
North Swedish horses originated
in Africa…just kidding they are from Sweden. They were developed from
Scandinavian horse breeds. They have been used as pack horses, military mounts,
and forestry work. They can be found in Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Estonia. They
are smaller (about 15 hands tall) than some of the more powerful breeds, but do
not let their size fool you; they are very strong, excellent workers. They are also
very sweet, willing, tender, and easy to care for.
They have a relatively
small head, a crested neck, sloping shoulders, deeper body frame, and very
rounded quarters. They also have a low set tail and a sweeping quarter. They
have solid, round feet. They also have a low wither and a deep chest as well.
