Knapstrupper and Appaloosa stallions look very similar, as they both have spotted coats. However, the two breeds developed independently. The Knapstrupper breed comes from Denmark, while Appaloosas originated in the USA. Knapstruppers are not only popular because of their coat pattern, but are also talented dressage horses. The Schleich® figurines are all modeled in finest detail and they encourage children to play and learn at the same time.
