Holsteiner horses originated in Germany several centuries ago and are probably the oldest German warmblood horse. Holsteiner horses have German, Neapolitan, Spanish, and oriental bloodlines and were very popular in the 17th century in Italy, France, and Denmark. During the 19th century Holsteiner horses were crossed with Yorkshire Coach Horses and Cleveland Bay stallions to produce a tough, active, handsome carriage horse with a willing nature and distinctive high knee action. The also become popular as an army mount.

In 1867 the Prussians founded the Traventhall Stud in Schleswig-Holstein where the breeding of modern day Holsteiner horses began. Today the main breeding center is located in Elmshorn, Germany. After World War II some Thoroughbred blood was introduced to produce a lighter, more refined horse with a better shoulder. In comparison to other warmbloods Holsteiners are only bred in relatively small numbers with little variations.
