Saxon Stud Farm

Visiting the Saxon stud farm or the traditional “Hengstparaden“ (stallion parades) is not only recommendable for “horse-lovers“ but to all.

Built in 1733 the stallions in Moritzburg, King Anthony (König Anton), called the “Kind“, decided after the ending of the Napoleonic wars to station 38 stallions in Moritzburg for use throughout Saxony. The stock was later on completed with East Frisian and Belgian horse races.
In the beginnings of the 1960s cobs were brought to Moritzburg. In cooperation with other Saxon and Thuringian breeders they succeeded in breeding the race of the heavy warmblood.

Today ca. 100 stallions of the races warm blood, heavy warmblood, cold blood and cobs amount in Moritzburg.
