Sports Equestrian Breeds Dutch Warmblood
22
The Warmblood horse originated from the old European coaching horses of the 18th and 19th century, which themselves evolved from the heavy chargers used by the knights in the prior century. As coaching was phased out with the advance of steam and conbustion engines, the coaching horse fell into decline, almost becoming extinct until the late 1950's when a surging interest in the equestrian sports of dressage and cross country jumping began bringing about a revival of sporting horses in general. The old coaching blood was mixed with the lighter Thoroughbred and Arabian bloodlines to create the modern day Warmblood.
