American Warmblood horse breed information

(Rated 4.26 Stars)

American Warmblood description

The ideal warmblood is powerful and balanced with good bone and elastic gaits. Sport horses of all bloodlines are accepted as long as they can qualify with the qualities and talents to progress though the levels in these traditional sports while remaining sound of mind and body.

Breeding stock must be approved for breeding through studbook inspection, which requires mares and stallions to meet even more stringent inspection and performance criteria. Horses which fail to meet these criteria may still be issued recording papers, but are not considered registered American Warmbloods.

American Warmblood origin


American Warmblood history

The American Warmblood is a result of centuries of breeding hot blooded horses (Thoroughbreds) with cold blooded horses (drafts) to produce an athletic, well-rounded mount. American Warmbloods might be thought of as a more distinct breed than European Warmbloods.

In order to understand the American Warmblood type it is helpful to rest any preconceived notions about the definition of "breed" or "pure-bred" . Best to refer to it as a "type". American horse breeders have employed selective breeding for hundreds of years. In many cases registries have been started to track and supervise bloodlines. Quarter Horses, Morgans and American Saddlebreds are popular examples of horses that have been bred into very high standards.

During the same time in Europe this has not been the case. European sport horses more closely follow a melting pot analogy. It is known that European Warmbloods can be greatly mixed amongst themselves and thus share the same backgrounds.

American Warmblood uses

American Warmbloods are horses that are trained to be used in competitions like show jumping and dressage. Their powerful and strong shoulders and hind quarters is what makes them so great for competitions. They also have a short back – which helps them to compete in any type of riding event.

American Warmblood influence

The American Warmblood has been influenced by the European warmbloods, the Thoroughbred and the Arabian, as well as some draft horse breeds.
