Hungarian Warmblood

    hungar1.jpgThe Hungarian Warmblood or Hungarian Sport horse as it is also known was developed at the Mezohegyes State Stud in Hungary. Through selective crossing of native Hungarian horse breeds: Kisber Felver, Gidran, Furioso-North Star, and Nonius to established "warmblood sport horse " breeds such as Holsteiner, Hannoverian, and Dutch Warmblood. The Stud was able to produce a warmblood breed capable of all modern sport horse disciplines: dressage, show jumping, eventing, and combined driving. The more famous international competitors include Randi, ridden by John Whitaker has had major Grand Prix wins at Gottemberg, Valkensward, Dublin, Monterrey, and Paris. Heritage Poker ridden by Marcus Beerbaum has had success in Volvo World Cup competitions.

    The breed stands 16 to 17.0 hands high, and comes in all solid colors. The influence of the Hungarian breeds produced a horse lighter and more elegant than its heavier warmblood predecessors. The Hungarian Warmblood is a very beautiful horse of noble bearing, animated action, exceptional intelligence, and disposition.
