Jydske Dragonregiment (English: "Jutland Dragoon Regiment") is the sole pure armoured regiment of the Royal Danish Army.

It was formed in 1932 by the amalgamation of "3. Dragonregiment" in Århus and "5. Dragonregiment" from Randers. Original located in Randers, it moved to a new barrack in Holstebro in 1953, where it has been ever since.On July 19, 2005, Prinsens Livregiment was merged with Jydske Dragonregiment.

The regiment today serves only in the armoured role, with one panserbataljon ("Armored Battalion") The opklaringsbataljon ("Recon Battalion") is now tasked with educating of the conspripts and has got a new name; Uddannelsebatajlon. This is done in two HBU units (Hærens Basis Uddannelse = "Army Basic Training") and one HRU unit (Hærens Reaktionsstyrkeuddannelse = "Army Reaction Force Training").
