The Aegidienberger is a small gaited riding horse from Germany. Like the Icelandic horse it can naturally perform a gait known as the tölt. They were first recognized as a breed at the end of the 20th century. The Aegidienberger is a cross between the Peruvian Paso and the Icelandic horse created to produce a horse that was larger than the Icelandic but still small and hardy enough to navigate difficult terrain. They generally stand between 13 and 15 hands high.
