Post American Warmbloods

Tell me everything and anything you know about them. I'm talking characteristics, breed history, stuff like that. I went on the website but it didn't really talk about characteristics and I can't find many other websites for info. I have to do a 4 page essay on them and a powerpoint for Horse Science and I'm stumped on how I'm going to find 4 pages on info. Tomorrow, I'll grab the sheet from my locker and let ya'll know everything he wants in the report. Any help will be amazing!

There isn't really a set breed for AWB. It's more a melting pot for anything tall, which is sad. Many a trying to develope a specific American Warmblood breed, but we probably won't see the outcome for 20+ years. Pretty much anything of a watmblood breed, warmblood cross, or TB cross can be registered with AWB. My suggestion would be to choose another breed to focus on.

^He put 28 breeds in a hat and we had to draw one. That was the one I got, so I'm stuck. I was pretty positive Warmbloods in the US were just crosses and they could be very different. Oh well, I'll just do the best I can with the hand I was dealt.

From the American Warmblood Society:
To be eligible for registration a horse/pony can be of any breed stock or combination thereof, except 100% hot- blood (Thoroughbred or Arabian) or 100% cold-blood (draft breeds). (See Nomination below.)

So anything that is half hotblood and half coldblood. Literally almost any cross.

Well, if I write about every cross there is, I'm sure I can fill up 4 pages. =/

The American Warmblood is quite the melting pot. It was pointed out to me that there are certain standards for inspection, but from what I can tell, it's kind of a mutt-like breed registry right now - quite a few Draft/TB crosses get registered there to be called WBs. I do hope that it quickly becomes something more, but as Sixlets said, it probably won't happen very quickly. The Canadian Warmblood started out much the same way, and it's now on its way to being a very respected registry. Right now, unfortunately, a lot of people don't take the American Warmblood Registry very seriously (much the same way for the the Canadian Warmblood Registry not long ago).
There isn't much breed history since it's still mostly a developing breed - you might have better luck looking at the old English breeds for some really interesting, deep history.

There are two groups trying to create an American Warmblood type.
Here are their websites which can offer explanations;

Sport Horses | Dressage Horses | Warmbloods

I think id start out by saying what is accepted and state what the registry is trying to do and what type of horse they are trying to develop. Eg sport horses for the eventing, show jumping, dressage and driving etc. I'd explain that the American warmblood is a breed that is being developed as we speak which means that the stud books are OPEN and i'd explain what that means...(SUPER Exciting isn't it!) to be alive to witness this history... and speaking of history I think id explain why it is that we want these warm-bloods (they are sport horse extraordinaire) and how they came to be in the first place. The original warmbloods were bred by the landed elite and by the european royalty. They were used originally for war as well as for huge refined show horses to pull the rich nobles carriages and developed by the nobles by standing their prime big war stallions at state run barns to the farmers mares (local grade farm mares) at a cheap or free rate in order to provide the farmer with better horses for farm work but primarily to supply the state with carvery and war mounts in times of war. In other words they ment to bring up the entire horse population to a finer level by breeding the farm draft style local horses with the kings fine stallion to make a more refined horse for riding that stil lhad the willingness and heavy bone of the draft but the refinement and style of the thoroughbred and Arab stallions. Which were the foundation of both the English thoroughbred stallion and the Warm blood stallion.

Some of what has been posted here is correct and a lot is not.


There is actually a ton of information posted on their website...all you have to do is read.

It started with an idea based very much on how the original warmbloods started in Europe with the idea that the mare base bred up with qualified and inspected stallions over time will create a unique "American Warmblood" just as there are Swedish and Dutch. The effort was to make the selection and inspection process less expensive than what was being done at the time with getting and paying for European inspectors so the organization used people here and passed the saving on to the members. One such judge was Ratchel Ehrlich..owner of Werbellin a top dressage stallion.

Not just any old hot with any old warm will pass the inspection and there are many that don't make the 60% qualifying score for the lowest level ribbon ( see the site for this info).

JDI is not quite correct as the Canadian Warmblood and the American Warmblood were founded on entirely different ideas and requirements as the Canadian Warmblood horses HAD to be already approved in their home registry or their parents had to be.

I would say the American Warmblood is more based like the Canadian Sporthorse Society than CWBA however the pass for inspection was actually harder for AWS than the CSH for many years and is still at a higher standard for stallions.

If you have any questions I will try to answer them as my own stallion is CSH and AWS and I was Ontario AWS director for a few years a while back.
