    Dunno, but looks like they had a good day out hunting, what with all the mud splattered all over him. Rider stayed awful clean though.

    Looks like a Knabstrupper to me too.

    I'll bet that pair gets a lot of photos taken! Very pretty.

    Default Only the owner would know for sure

    but I suspect that it's a leopard appaloosa.
    There just not that many Knabstruppers here (yet). and even fewer are leopards.

    But in truth I really don't know.

    Here's leopard spotted Knabbie to compare.
    Generally a bigger heavier type of horse maybe.

    Looks like a plain ol' adorable Appy to me. I can remember Katherine Lindsey, MFH's columns in COTH about her Appaloosa hunter(s) - The ones who really "took care" of her AND themselves (looking out for No. 1 is usually an Appy's No. 1 prioritiy). The one pictured might possibly a race-bred one with a good dose of TB. I've had four Apps, two Foundation bred, one race bred, and currently an Arab cross (16.2h.h.!!). I haven't jumped the youngster yet, but the other three were all TERRIFIC jumpers and I field hunted one of them. Considering the rarity of Knabs in this country, I doubt someone would be riding on in the huntfield. It would be a pretty expensive field hunter. LOL Not impossible that it's a Knab, but I think an App is more likely.

    Looks like a fairly typical appy. Not sure why anyone would think different.

    because this one looks to actually have a tail and has a nice face? Most people I've met associate appy with crazy eyes, ugly heads and rat tails.

    TVH (Tennessee Valley Hunt) usually has a foxhunting 101 weekend in late Aug. I went, sans horse, two summers ago, and audited (?). I was going to go with my mare last summer but a 2 month long lameness problem put a quick end to that plan.
    Carla was the contact person and that is her in the pic. I'd ask her, and join TVH for their August weekend!

    He/she sure is one gorgeous horse.

    I vote Appyloosy too. Yep, looking out for numero uno is their first priority. However, I've had them do incredible things to save my bacon too. Go figger.

    Ive keep seeing that picture when Im on here. He is so very pretty. I think having a Dalmatian all my life has made me love leopard Appaloosas. This one does look like an App. Like someone said before, Knabstruppers are rare here and leopard ones are even more rare.
