The Royal Family’s horses have been living in the Royal stables complex at Christiansborg castle since the 18th century. The beautiful white horses are hitched to the coach in splendid gala harness ready to convey their royal passenger. You can not only see the horses but also the coaches, the harnesses etc. from different time periods. The stable’s finest vehicle is the Golden State Coach. It was built in 1840 and is coated with 24-carat gold leaf. The oldest coach in the stables is Queen Dowager Juliane Marie’s state coach which dates from 1778. The riding grounds on the back side of the castle was used to train the horses that were used to transport the royal family in carriages.
