    Default Are Trakehners still popular nowadays?

    Looking at the 'for sale' ads there don't seem to be many Trakehners. Are they still a popular breed and what discipline do people buy them for?

    There's quite a few uk breeders - if you check on the breed society page there should be a list. Generally used for dressage.

    I have a rising 4 year old black Trakehner mare, she's bred for dressage and has a very elevated trot.

    Two or three years ago, at an International Shagya convention in Europe, a representative of the Trakehner Stud book was present and thanked the Shagya for saving the Trakehner. I don't know the full history just that the Shagya was important for the breed survival. Today there are 10 Shagya stallions approved for entry into the Trakehner Stud book.

    Yarland Summer Song is an eventing sire in France, a few years ago we saw some of his off-spring at Lion D'Angers 3 day event.
