Danish Warmblood Horse

One of the more recent of the selectively bred European competition horses is the Danish Warmblood, whose stud-book was not opened until the 1960s.

In a relatively short space of time, however, Danish breeders have succeeded in producing a competition horse of superior quality and more versatility than many of the European breeds.

Conformation: The best Danish horses have a Thoroughbred outline that is combined with substance, strength, and good legs.

Character: courageous and spirited, have excellent temperaments, and good, free action.

Uses: Dressage, Cross Country.
