About Hanoverian HorsesAbout Hanoverian Horses



Hanoverian Horses (German: Hannoveraner) are one of the most well-loved and wide-spread of the European warmbloods, and they have made a name for themselves in Grand Prix competitions and the Olympic Games.

Hanoverian horses were established in Celle, Germany in 1735 by George II, King of England (1727-1760). They were initially refined with Thoroughbred blood, giving their movement more freedom and lightness. The ideal result was a horse swift and strong enough for competitions while remaining tough enough for general work. By the end of the 18th century there were detailed logs of bloodlines which were carefully monitored. During the Napoleonic Wars much of the Celle stock was depleted, however it picked up again after 1816 and earned a stronger Thoroughbred influence making the resulting stock too light for real agricultural use, so attempts were made to thicken the stock back up again.

By 1924 breeding spread to Osnabruck-Eversburg where after the second world war Trakehners made their way into the Hanoverian bloodline helping to further refine a solid sport horse.

They are now bred extensively in North and South America, as well as Australia.

Hanoverians are elegant, strong, and robust. They are bred to be willing and trainable, and have a strong back, powerful body, athletic movement, and strong limbs. Chestnut, bay, black, and gray colors are found the most often. Regulations prohibit horses with too much white, and buckskin, palomino and cremello horses from being registered. They can be 15.3–17.2 hands (63–70 inches, 160–178 cm) high, but most are in the range of 16–16.2 hands (64–66 inches, 163–168 cm).
