Danish Warmblood

Classified as a warmblood and originating from denmark, the Danish Warmblood was created through breeding native danish mares, typically Frederiksborg stock crossed with Thoroughbred then with top Eeuropean stallions. The stallions used for breeding were often Swedish, Trakehner, Hanoverian, Holstein and Polish. The Danish Warmblood registry controls the registration of all foals looking to be registered as Danish Warmbloods and was established in the mid-20th century. The registry also approves stallions for breeding. This breed is considered one of the most veristal competitive horse breeds particuarly in the sports of dressage, show jumping and three-day eventing.

The North American Danish Warmblood Association was established in the United States in the year 2001 to help promote the breed in the United States. It is a more uncommon breed in the United States but very popular in European countries.
