Sadly we need to find a new home for our beautiful boy, Jack. He has an amazing temperament and everyone comments on how chilled and happy he is. He is no longer in ridden Work due to a long standing, but maintenance free stifle issue. This does not affect him day to day and he will happily be in a field enjoying life as long as he has company. We will be lost without him and need to find him the the best possible home.

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    We would love a home where we can keep in contact with Jack. A home where he can be out with a companion. Human time would be great too - he will do anything for a scratch and will follow you round like a puppy dog and do some Liberty work.

Relevant health or lameness issues

Jack has never been ill, sick or sorry - he has just had an issue with his right hind stifle which means we have decided to retire him from ridden work. This has been injected in the past but does not affect him day to day or stop him from running around / playing in the field like a four year old!

Veterinary examinations or treatment given in the past 12 months

Nerve blocks to his right leg up to and including his sacroiliac joint, x-rays and an ultrasound scan with subsequent stifle corticosteroid injection.

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:
