Harvey is a really easy horse to care for, he is barefoot and ridden bitless. In his home environment he is calm and connected and capable of lovely liberty work (He is L3 Parelli Liberty) His collection is coming along in walk and trot but his canter needs work. He will hack out alone or in company and does jump although a bit lazy. In new environments he can loose his confidence and tends to put the brakes on and needs to have a good look around. He would be excellent on a yard that held their own comps.

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    I would love a home for Harvey who understands how to help him when he gets unconfident and introverted. Someone who is prepared to take their time will be rewarded with a wonderful companion. He will live out with a rug in in winter. He has been with mares and geldings. He has no problems in summer with flies or midges. He likes to be with other horses and would not do well on his own. If left on his own he will shout and run about. Harvey travels well.

Relevant health or lameness issues

Harvey is in excellent health apart from one split upper tooth( this is not causing any problems at the moment)and floating hind patellas . This does not effect his movements and is not painful but he does shake his legs when you ask him to pick up his hind feet. He is better when he has been exercised.

Please describe your horses behaviour in traffic

He is very well behaved in traffic/tractors etc although he lives in a very rural area where the traffic is light. He has not been in heavy constant traffic.

Please describe your horses behaviour when hacking out alone and in company

Hacking out alone or in company from home Harvey is fine as he knows his regular hacks. In new environments he will tend to stop and need a good look about to satisfy that all is well. He is better in company in new places.He has never run off or bolted, he stops instead.

Details of any individual behavioural traits which may influence the type of person best suited to take on the horse

When Harvey looses his confidence he needs a more experienced rider to help him so that reason I would say he is not a novice ride .

None

Dutch Warmblood Horse

The head is well shaped, usually with a straight profile, and the neck is arched and well muscled, merging neatly into the withers, which are fairly prominent. The back is straight and fairly long, with the croup short, broad and flat. The tail is set high. The chest of this horse is deep and full and the shoulder is well sloped. The legs are b with a long forearm. Hindquarters are powerful and highly muscled, a characteristic inherited from the original and powerful farm horses of the Netherlands and a feature necessary for b movements.

Dutch Warmbloods are bred to perform in dressage and show jumping at the highest level. These horses are appealing modern horses, with great eagerness, reliability and intelligence.

Harness Horse:

The unique Dutch harness horse is bred to perform in driving competitions and in harness horse classes. This harness horse displays a long moment of suspension in the trot, a broadly moving foreleg with high knee action and a powerful carrying hindleg, in combination with a proud, high carriage, enhanced by the long, vertically set neck. The Dutch harness horse is principally harnessed in front of a light show carriage to enhance its unique action.

Gelderland Type:

With the merging of the local studbooks into one organization, some breeders decided not to follow the modern trend and continued to breed the traditional farm type of light draft horse - the Gelderlander. The KWPN created a special breeding direction for these breeders who wished to preserve this original type. The classic lines with the rich front and the enthusiastic performance of the Gelderland horse appeals to a large group of people. Because of its conformation, capacities and its willing and reliable character, the Gelderlander can perform equally well in harness and under saddle. This versatility give the Gelderlander high practical value.

Dutch Warmblood color:

  • most Dutch Warmbloods are black, brown, bay, chestnut, or grey, and white markings are not uncommon;

Dutch Warmblood size:

  • Dutch Warmbloodhorses average about 16.2 hh with some reaching 17 hh;

Dutch Warmblood weight:

  • is around 1430lb (650kg);

Dutch Warmblood temperament:

  • breeders pay particular attention to temperament. Privately owned stallions are only allowed to stud after passing rigerous testing focusing on confirmation, movement, temperament and close monitoring of progney.

Dutch Warmblood origin:

The Dutch Warmblood is a fairly modern breed that was derived from two native Dutch Breeds - the Gelderlander and the Groningen. The breeders intended to combine the best characteristics of each breed and then the resulting offspring were further refined with the introduction of Thoroughbred blood. This resulted in athletic horses, with good sloping shoulders, giving them a flatter and longer action, as well as longer necks and shorter backs than the native Dutch breeds. The addition of thoroughbred blood also improved the Dutch horses' scope and stamina. Dutch farmers earned their living with horses, so strict breeding practices have long been used. Other related Warmbloods, such as the Oldenburg and the Hanoverian, were used to clarify some minor conformation details and to emphasize the desirable calm temperament.

Dutch Warmblood health issues:

Dutch Warmbloods are sound and long-lived due to the stringent requirements placed on stallions and elite mares. While mild navicular changes, sesamoids, pastern arthritis and bone spavin may be permitted on radiographs, osteochondrosis in the hock or stifle is not allowed. Horses are disqualified from breeding for the following flaws: congenital eye defects, over- or underbite, lack of symmetry in stifles, hocks, hooves, or movement.

Dutch Warmblood uses:

No registry produced more successful international show jumping horses than the KWPN. For the 2007 year, Dutch Warmbloods were ranked #1 in jumping by the World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses (WBFSH).The only registry more successful on the dressage "big tour" was the Hanoverian studbook; Dutch Warmbloods were ranked #2 in dressage in the WBFSH rankings in 2007 due to high placings in major events by horses such as Painted Black, Jazz and Idocus.In North America, the Dutch Warmblood is a favorite choice for the hunter ring.

Dutch Warmblood influence:

  • Gelderlander, Hackney, Thoroughbreds, Groningen, Holsteiners and Trakehners.

Dutch Warmblood interesting facts:

  • A Dutch warmblood stallion by the name of Uraeus plays Viggo Mortennson's horse in all three Lord of The Rings movies.
