About Hessen HorsesAbout Hessen Horses



Reliable sources for local breeds in Hessen did not exist.rnThere was no state breeding as it was all based on the local farmers in thernformer centuries. The princely stables bred with imported breeds according tornthe period's fashion and for their own use only, creating no unique breed type.rnThe only exception was the Beberbeck stud which existed until 1929 and had arngood name for noble half-breeds.rnrn 

rnrnAfter being included in the Prussian stud agency in 1866 thernHessian breeders could not compete with the more important breeds of the otherrnPrussian provinces. Therefore the rural breeders concentrated upon the breedingrnof draft horses, as those were in large demand. The still existing warmbloodrnbreeding which was based on Oldenburg bloodlines was hardly noticed at therntime." Green Acresrnrn 

rnrnHessen is a breeding region in Germany along with Westphaliarnand Hanover. In fact, Hessen ranks 4th in warmblood breeding. It boasts morernthan 4,000 broodmares and more than 60 state stallions. This information isrnbased on the official Hessian State Stud at Dillenburg.rnrn 

rnrnThe Hessen Warmblood is an excellent German warmblood. Inrnthe 1960s the heavier breed of Hessen an effort was made to breed a morernrefined and lighter breed to be used as a sport horse. Trakenher, Hanoverian,rnHolsteiner and Arabian blood has been infused in an effort to achieve this end.rnThe Hessen is able to carry all types of riders from lightweight tornheavyweight. They have a sweet temperament, are elegant in their way of going,rnwilling, athletic, have great endurance and are intelligent.
