dutch warmblood

In the 1950s, the Dutch Warmblood came about by crossing the Gelderlanders with the Groningen, and then refining the horse with Thoroughbred. The Gelderlanders gave the new breed its excellent forequarters. The Dutch Warmblood is one of the most successful of the post war competition horses, and one of the most skillfully promoted. Marius, sire of the fabulous Mliton {show jumper}, was an exceptional representative of the breed and has to be regarded as one of the great show jumping stallions of recent years. Dutch Courage, the dressage horse produced by the British Olympic rider Jennie Loriston-Clarke, was significant in establishing the breed's reputation in Britain.

The Dutch Warmblood is a breed of horse developed for competition that has gained wide recognition in dressage. Developed through a breeding program that began in the 1960s, it is one of the most successful horse breeds developed in postwar Europe.
