Dfferant Warmblood Breeds

Hey guys.

I'm getting really super serious about a future in horses and that includes breeding, training, coaching, owning a show/boarding facility and most importantly showing. Now I do 3-Day Eventing and I love it so I intend to continue on that path. I have 3-4 excellant coach's in my province that I know of, one is mine, 1 lives 3 hours away and 2 are in my area and coach me when my coach is in Florida {she goes from Jan.-Apr.}

Now I'm wanting to either work prominently with Warmbloods or Thoroughbreds. Never actually ridden a TB but heavily worked 3 differant Warmbloods. All differant breeds. One was a Hungarian Warmblood, The other a Dutch Warmblood and the last a Canadian Warmblood. I did not like the Hungarian but I loved the Dutch and Canadian. So what are your guys' favorite Warmblood breeds?

Also how do I learn about the lineage and what is good and what is bad etc?

I'm partial to the Hanoverians... mostly because my boy is half-Hanoverian! His dad was imported from Germany, I think around 8 years ago, and he has produced some amazing off-spring for my trainer (my boy's breeder too!).

A few of our horses do dressage (myself included) but many of the offspring at the farm do jumpers, so in my experience they develop into well-rounded horses. I've found working with them to be level headed and very interested in learning - but they seem pretty slow to mature, till at least around 8 yrs or so before entering any serious level of competition.

Personally, I love the Warmblood mixes (again, partial to my own!). The HA/Half-Hanoverian I have is turning out amazing-- only 6 right now. He looks like lean Warmblood - tall (16 hands and still growing), black, super strong and long legs, but still has some of the re-fineness of the Arab in him.

When it comes down to it though - go with the horse you like, from a reputable breeder and trainer. All horses are different and you shouldn't necessarily discount a breed based on one or two horses!!

The best of luck in your searching!!

Theres all sorts of different warmbloods out there...Oldenburg, Hanoverian, Westphalian, Swedish Warmblood, Dutch Warmblood, American Warmblood, Hungarian Warmblood, Trakhener, and probably a few I have forgotten.

I like the Donnerhall and the Rubenstein bloodlines. I havent come across a Rubestein that hasnt had a good temperment and work ethic. Donnerhalls are very nice too, both produce nice dressage horses.

As far as eventing, I don't know much, but TBs and WBs are both great for it. I've seen many different WB breeds excel at all levels of eventing, so I guess if you look into some of the upper level event horses breeding, see what crosses you find, that may help. The only thing is there are the WB inspections for the different breeds, I think its mainly for breeding purposes. But some WBs can be registered with multiple registries, like some Oldenburgs can also be registered with the American Warmblood Society....i think. I could be wrong about that, but im pretty sure that Donnerhall was regitered with a few different registries.

Just a correction here.

A horse can only be registered with one WB registry but can be APPROVED for many others.

I know I need to b the one to pick the horse and that's fully what I intend to do I just wanted everyone else's opinions? What breeds did everyone find easiest to work with? What breeds did people find the most brave and forward moving? Those are the sort's of questions I'd like answered.

Oh and how do I start to learn about bloodlines?
