About Danish Warmblood HorsesAbout Danish Warmblood Horses



Danish Warmbloods, formerly know as the Danish Sports Horse,rnare large-framed horses from Denmark. They were developed by crossing Frederiksborkrnhorses with Thoroughbreds. The mares resulting from this were then bred withrnAnglo-Norman horses, Thoroughbreds, and Trakehners. This and selective breedingrnproduced a Danish Warmblood. Danish Warmbloods are the youngest of all Europeanrnwarmblood breeds.

rnrnDanish Warmbloods are similar to Thoroughbreds but they haverna more substantial build. They are known to be very cooperative, intelligent,rnalert, and sociable horses. They are courageous and have an excellentrntemperament. They are also described as having a good, free action, and arerneager to perform.

Danish Warmbloods are from 15.3 to 17 hands tall. They havernattractive heads with big eyes. Their shoulders are long and sloping with well-definedrnand pronounced withers giving a favorable position of the saddle. They havernmuscular necks with good length of rein, deep broad chests, and a strongrncompact back. Danish Warmbloods can be any solid color, though they are mostrncommonly seen in black, chestnut, bay, or dark brown.

In 1962 the first Danish Sporthorse Breed Society wasrnfounded, and a registry for the Danish Warmblood was opened to register foalsrnand approve of stallions for breeding. It is maintained by the Danish WarmbloodrnSociety. Danish breeders claim the Danish Warmblood to be of superior quality andrnmore versatility than many of the comparative European breeds.

rnrnThe brand of the horse is the Crown Over The Wave. It wasrndrawn by I. C. Christensen and designed by the Georg Jensen silver smithy inrn1963. The logo symbolizes a kingdom surrounded by water, and is used tornidentify the progeny of stallions and mares graded with Danish Warmblood.

rnrnDanish Warmbloods are used in dressage, show jumping, andrneventing. They are also sometimes used for Cross Country. Prior to 2004, therngoal of the Danish Warmblood Society was to breed an all-around sporthorse, butrnnow breeding is more specifically pinpointed to create a top show jumper orrndressage horse. 

In order to maintain high standards of the breed, arn"100 day test" is given to Danish Warmblood stallions before they arernapproved of for breeding. The test requires qualities such as easy riding and arnstrong competitive aptitude.

rnrnApproximately 3,500 foals are registered every year. ThernNational Committee for Horse breeding is responsible for secure stud records.rnThe Danish Warmblood is still an uncommon breed in the United States; howeverrnin 2001 a North American Danish Warmblood Association was formed to promote thernbreed in the U.S.
