Confused about American Warmbloods

Does anyone own an American Warmblood? Is your American Warmblood registered? What are the characteristics of the breed? Are they basically a mutt?

Well, technically, I think an American warmblood can be a horse that is a draft cross which is totally different from other warmbloods such as Trakheners, Hanoverians and those type of horses that were bred for a very specific type of horse over many generations.

My gelding is a percheron/clyde/TB/paint mix so he is a real mutt but I guess if I really wanted to I could register him as an AWB, but why?

Mine is a fully approved two star AWS.

Received gold on his inspection, along with 11 more medals for inspections, and competition.

He is Hanoverian/anglo arab.

Go to the site to determine what qualifies and what does not.

Just because you have a crossbreed DOES NOT make it immediately eligible to be a AW or being called an AW.

More that 3/4 of all stallions approved are full or part Warmbloods from European origins.

We have a AWB that is Approved and Branded. He's a 17.3 Holsteiner / TB Cross. He's pretty level headed and is a blast to ride... however, he's still just kind of a mutt. haha!

Just because it's a "mutt" doesn't mean it couldn't be an awesome horse! All this inbreeding isn't really good for the horses so mixing up the genes a bit is fine by me.

My aunt has a American Warmblood Regen my avatar left. And she is big brown and is registered. I dont think all WB are like this only Regen but she can be a bit of a b- some times as my aunt says. But i think the average WB is nice and gentle. She is a VERY VERY soft and smooth ride.
