Danish Warmblood Horse

Country of Origin: Denmark

Dutch Warmblood Horse


Breeds native to Denmark have a tendency to be robust and tough, but not necessarily athletic. The necessity arose for an all around eventing animal with more versatility.


Breeding began in 1962 to create a good sporting mount and came from Trakehner, Hanoverian, Holstein & Swedish warmblood lines. The resulting animal has made quite a name for itself and excelled in a number of competition types.

The success of this lively breed comes from many factors, however their strict breeding methods is perhaps the most important. Stallions are selected based on performance standards & specific bloodlines are skillfully imported. Today these animals are exported by the thousands throughout Europe and as far away as Australia & the US.
