The Sachsen Warmblood or Sachsen Anhaltiner comes from eastern Germany & they are a rare warmblood breed.


The breeding association was established in 1944, at a time when the only studbooks were for coldblooded or heavy warmblooded animals. The marching on of the 20th century saw a rapid decline in the breeding of draft animals and conversely an increase in the demand for warmblood sport type animals. Using smaller, desert breeds the area of Saxony-Anhalt began breeding smaller, lighter warmblood animals & within 20 years breeding of the heavier type ceased altogether.
