About Hanoverian HorsesAbout Hanoverian Horses



rnrnHanoverian Horses (German: Hannoveraner) are one of the mostrnwell-loved and wide-spread of the European warmbloods, and they have made arnname for themselves in Grand Prix competitions and the Olympic Games.

rnrnHanoverian horses were established in Celle, Germany in 1735rnby George II, King of England (1727-1760). They were initially refined withrnThoroughbred blood, giving their movement more freedom and lightness. The idealrnresult was a horse swift and strong enough for competitions while remainingrntough enough for general work. By the end of the 18th century there wererndetailed logs of bloodlines which were carefully monitored. During thernNapoleonic Wars much of the Celle stock was depleted, however it picked uprnagain after 1816 and earned a stronger Thoroughbred influence making thernresulting stock too light for real agricultural use, so attempts were made tornthicken the stock back up again.

rnrnBy 1924 breeding spread to Osnabruck-Eversburg where afterrnthe second world war Trakehners made their way into the Hanoverian bloodlinernhelping to further refine a solid sport horse.

rnrnThey are now bred extensivelyrnin North and South America, as well as Australia.

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