Danish Warmblood

From Horse

Today’s Danish Warmblood horse has developed immeasurably during recent years. Native Danish horse breeds the Frederiksborg and the Spotted Knabstrup were not competitive in the equestrian disciplines of Show jumping, Dressage or 3-Day Eventing therefore necessitating the Danish to start a breeding program to develop their own competitive sport horse. The Danish Warmblood horse breed is the fruit of an exhaustive breeding program, which started in 1962. Selected Trakehner, Hanoverian, Holstein and Swedish Warmbloods were carefully selected to be bred with various local mares.
