For Those of You Who Know About Warmbloods.....

At what age to they stop growing? I'm wondering about Hanoverians actually. I've heard they don't stop until around 10 but I'm not sure I believe that

That seems a bit much. They may continue to fill out, but mature height is more like 6 or 7 years.

Generally speaking, they will usually be completely mature in height by about 7 years old, but will continue to fill out and broaden up for another couple of years. I bought my last gelding at 5 at 17hh and he grew another inch (17.1hh) by the time he was 7.
Of course, if you have a shorter warmblood, this won't be true.
