What struck me first about Hugin, was his beautiful markings and Baroque style confirmation. What really got to my heart, was when I read about his story. Hugin is blind in both eyes and at one point had three broken legs. That Hugin is still alive is amazing enough, but read on to see photos of Hugin preforming complicated dressage movements and to learn more about his trainer.

According to his website, Bent Branderup is a trainer in Denmark who is dedicated to preserving the old Danish breed "The Frederiksborger Horse". His aim is to preserve the smaller baroque type - with long neck, baroque head, high movements and easy-to-train temperament.

Hi Lizzy, I don’t actually own Hugin. I just picked him to featured because I thought he was so pretty. That’s what the Show Horse Gallery is all about. Glad you like him too! If you want to learn more about Hugin visit:

What a magnificent creature!!! Being blind, WOW, animals certainly can teach humans sooo much about “disabilities.” Thank you!

Wow, I actually teared up, seeing that picture of his LOVELY extended trot after all that he has been through. What a true miracle he is.

Never say I can’t or this horse won’t!  You can and he will.  Patience.  Wonderful story.

This is so wonderful to see, that even bad things that happened to an animal can be turned into good - with love, patience and sensitive work. What a wonderful horse!

Janine, the girth is manufactured by the German company Deuber & Partner, http://deuber-partner.com/index.php/barocksaettel/barock-zubehoer-barocksattel/lederbauchgurt-englisch-detail It is especially developed for baroque saddles like Deuber & Partner’s “Ecuyer”, http://deuber-partner.com/index.php/barocksaettel/barocksaettel/ecuyer-detail , which Bent Branderup has been using for many years, although today he has his own saddle manufactured by Stübben, http://www.stuebben.com/start.php?lg=gbgb&su=products-saddles-akademische-saettel&id=1384&top=2&top2=9 . Notice the special angle the buckles are positioned in that will not necessarily fit optimally with the billets of an English saddle.

Gorgeous horse and so trusting. And his owner amazing for taking care of him. So many other people would have put him down for being blind or breaking his legs. Horses deserve a chance, too.

I was wondering if Hugin was a “throwback to the ancient tiger horse? His markings seem consister with this breed. I am not familiar with the knab———.mentioned. I am sure he is gone now, but his devotion to you took my breath away.
