The Swedish Warmblood

The Swedish Warmblood has been established for about 400 years.

The breed has produced a versatile all-round horse, usually 15.3-17.1hh, excelling in world class competition.

The Swedish horse of today was developed from the light cavalry horse.
Early influences in this development came from the trakehner and hanoverian bloodlines. Later influences include Holsteiner and Dutch stock.

The Swedish horse has been traditionally known as an excellent dressage horse, with many successes in the eventing world. Later introductions of outside bloodlines have been to improve the jumping ability of the breed. FLYING is the oldest National Stud in the world - this is where the Swedish Warmblood was founded.
