Czech Warmblood Horse
The Czech Warmblood is an all around animal with a great deal of versatility. They are a popular warmblood and often exported as riding horses to western European countries,
The horses that originally come from the Czech Republic were primarily of warmblood type. These animals were refined with Spanish and Asian bloodlines but most of this breeds refinement comes from English animals.
After the first World War the Czech Warmblood lines were well maintained and largely influenced by Thoroughbred & solid Oldenburg stallions. After the second World War the advent of machines created a marked drop in breed numbers as their use in military & on local farms declined.
Today’s Czech Warmblood is perhaps one of the most widespread breeds in the Czech Republic, well liked for their versatility & athletic qualities.
