The Jutland is a rare Danish heavy draft breed, which is named after the Jutland peninsula where it was developed. This breed is unique for being the only draft breed that was developed in Denmark.

The Jutland vs. the Suffolk Punch:
The ancestors of the Jutland horse had roamed Denmark for over a thousand years, and it is believed that they were extensively used by the Vikings in the region. However, the development of the Jutland started only in 1850, when horses were selectively bred with the aim of developing a strong draft breed for the Danish farmers.

The development process took a leap forward when, in 1862, a Suffolk Punch stallion named Oppenheim was imported to Jutland and was crossed with the local horses. Oppenheim greatly influenced the formation of the Jutland via his descendant Aldrup Menkedal, who is considered as the foundation stallion of the Jutland. As such, all of the Jutland horses living today trace back to this one stallion.

The Jutland vs. the Suffolk Punch conformation-wise:
The influence of the Suffolk Punch on the Jutland is noticeable in the conformation of Jutland horses, which sometimes resembles that of the Suffolk Punch. It includes short and thick legs, a short back, a high-set neck which can be thick, and an overall wide and muscular build.

However, there are two noticeable differences between the two breeds. First, the necks of Jutland horses look less arched than the necks of Suffolk Punches. Second, Jutlands have thick manes, which can be straight or coarse, and plenty of feathering, while Suffolk Punches horses have thin manes and little feathering.

The Jutland today:
Originally, Jutland horses were mainly used on farms, which is why the mechanization of agriculture in the 1960s left the Jutland breed redundant as a farm horse. That said, many Jutlands were also used for pulling beer wagons, a purpose which they still fulfil today in Denmark, where the Carlsberg's brewery Jutlands are located. In addition, modern Jutland horses are mainly used for leisure activities, both as riding and harness horses.
