Any Knabstrupper owners out there?

I've been researching different breeds, and I'm intrigued with Knabstruppers. I'm curious about their abilities and general temperament. I know they can be successful in any avenue, but how is their ridability/ trainability? I also can't find anything on their temperament. Does anyone have experience with this breed?

There temperaments are generally excellent, but in saying that is a generalisation. As you probably know there is variation in every breed.
This is my favourite Knabstrupper stallion:-
Victoria Max Theurer: Sartors Showtime
Gestüt Vorwerk: Sartors Showtime

This is another nice Knabstrupper stallion
Knabstrupper & Sportaloosa stallion Lori's Flashpoint Af Lyn - Cayuse Sportaloosas

I do of many more, if you want the links, but this is a start. I rode one many years ago as New Zealand had two Knabstrupper stallions imported, way back then. He was a black leopard son of Denmark, out of a TB mare. You would never know he was half TB, as he was extremely quiet.

Shawin, I love the first stallion! Here is another one of my favorites:

His foals look great crossed with warmbloods. I'm quickly finding out that I like the warmblood type more than the baroque style. I like a little bit of thoroughbred, but I like mostly quiet breeds, so I'm relieved to hear Knabstruppers aren't (usually) temperamental.

Knabstruppers are generally very kind horses, very intelligent, try hard to please and have tons of ability.
Yes I like Halifax Middelsom as well. There are some wonderful Knabs around, but depending on where you're situated in the world, you may have enquire about Frozen Semen. Here's a couple more:-
Ambrosius af Asgard Atlantis
Figaro & Amadeus The Majestic Knabstrupper Stud - Stallions

Sartors Supermodel (black leopard) has just been imported to Australia as well and is standing at the same Stud as Lori's Flashpoint Af Lyn (black leopard).
If you go on Facebook, you can see many Studs personal pages and view all their progeny. Not many update their websites much, but Facebook has all the latest info.

I'm located in the USA, so frozen would definitely be necessary for variety. I've never seen one in my region. I was mostly interested for a future purchase before I traveled days to test a horse out haha.

I met a lady who had one and used her's for dressage and the mare was very laid back, curious, and nice to be around.

I'm not sure if you know about these Knabstruppers in the USA, but here's another link, I go to regularly.
