Oldenburg Horse

Germany’s heaviest warmblood, it was based on the Friesian horse and developed as a coach horse.

Later breeders introduced Thoroughbred, Cleveland Bay and Hanoverian blood and – more recently – further infusions of Thoroughbred and Selle Français have produced a finer horse more suitable for the competitive disciplines.

Origin: Germany.

Colour: Brown, black and bay.

Height: between 16 and 17hh.

Conformation: rather plain head, long strong neck, muscular sloping shoulder, deep chested powerful body and strong quarters, short limbs with plenty of bone and large joints.

Character: intelligent, bold, good temperament.

Uses: all disciplines incl. competition driving.
