Warmblood Breeds

Groups Orginated

In Europe and registered with organizations that are characterized by open studbook policy, studbook selection, and the aim of breeding for equestrian sport. The term distinguishes these horses from both heavy draft horses ("cold bloods") and refined light saddle horses such as the Thoroughbred and Arabian ("hot bloods"). Although modern warmbloods are descended from heavier agricultural types systematically upgraded by hotblood influence, the term does not imply that warmbloods are direct crosses of "cold" and "hot".

Warmblood are Categorys

Breed or Bloodline,

In the earliest years, this was work, whether it was pulling carriages on a city street or pulling logs for farmers clearing land. As such, they were historically strong, stout horses. As work needs changed, breeding focused on sport and competition. The warmblood breeds are named according to the individual country; for example, Hanoverians originated in Hanover, Germany, while Swedish Warmbloods originated in Sweden. The modern warmblood sport horse boasts five generations of recognized sport horse bloodlines..

Warmblood Characteristics

Dressage and Jumping Sports

Breeders discovered that by adding the characteristics of an athletic hot-blooded horse, such as an Arabian or thoroughbred, they could temper the massive size of the draft and add some speed and stamina, while keeping the strength. Warmblood legs are typically wider and stronger than those of refined breeds, so they can easily carry their own weight and a rider’s -- and pull something as necessary. Although a generalization, modern warmbloods have a good temperament, but are not known for racing speed.
