This warmblood horse originated in the sandy province of Gelderland in the Netherlands. Native mares of this province were crossed with Andalusian, Neapolitan, Norman, Norfold Roadster, and Holstein stallions to produce the Gelderland (also known as the Gelderlander). In the nineteenth century, other breeds were introduced, such as the East Friesian, Oldenburg, Hackney, and Thoroughbred. Today the Gelderland is used as a carriage horse and as a show jumper. It has an effective high stepping trot. Since the late 1960s, the Gelderland was been absorbed into the Dutch Warmblood breed and have not been officially bred since then. A few breeders, though, still maintain this old breed.

The Gelderland, or Gelderlander, is a warmblood breed of horse that was developed in the province of Gelderland in the Netherlands.
