For Oldenburg horses!

I couldn't find a thread about them so i thought i would make one. Post you're pictures those of you that own one of the great breeds

I can start with mine. Her name is Engens Savannah, she is a 3 yr old mare that stands at about 170cm at the withers. We are guestimating that she will be around 175 (maybe more). Her blood lines produce large offspring, especially on her fathers side, her father is the Oldenburg stallion Nando and her grandfather is a TB that stands at almost 180 if i'm not wrong. So this mare is big and wont be getting any smaller.
Right now im getting her prepared for riding in and going to drive her in too.
She has a bit of a weakness with her legs that she cannot be used for jumping (nothing she was born with but happened when she was a foal, dont know the whole story). Anywho, she seems like she will be a fine dressage horse, and with her blood lines a pretty ok breeding mare :)

Here are som pictures :)

I have a filly who is Hanoverian/TB. What is the difference between an Oldenburg and a Hanoverian? Just curious. Thanks!

Don't own this boy, but I rode him for about 8 months while his owner was pregnant. Definitely one of the most talented horses I've ever worked with and just a goofball. Very fun ride. He's about 17.3 hh (so, about 180 cm) and can jump pretty much anything you put in front of him.

I got my Oldenburg this last January. She was posted on a board at a local grocery store as a warmblood nothing else. She was free. A couple of months ago when her winter coat began to shed I found a brand on her. It was reconized as the north american oldenburg brand. She has to be the sweetest horse I have ever had. She is perfectly sound and is trained very well. She loves jumping too. I can set up a jump in the pasture and she will catch sight of it and run over to it and start jumping and having fun all by herself. I still can't believe how lucky I have been to get such a great horse. I sent in the identification papers a couple weeks ago and now i'm just waiting for the feedback.

I found this oldenburg mare that I REALLY want to get. Here she is.

Horses aren't just a pleasure, they are an escape from all evils of mankind.

First...i'm terrible at explaining things so bare with me

The main difference I would have to say is that they are 2 of their own breeds with their own studbooks. They are/were bred to pretty much the same use. The Oldenburg is a modernized (if that is even a word :p) breed, where they have tried to mix in different breeds to get the most wanted sports horse (I believe it was in the 1800's they used Andalusian, Arabian and other types of blood). But today the only other blood that is used is TB.

The Hanoverian I believe is from the start more "pure" in a sence, there were others breeds used to create the most wanted type Hanoverian but not as much experimenting as the Oldenburg I believe. (I could be totally off so forgive me)

Once again, sorry for a horrible explanation...my english gets worse every day.

Lovely horses you guys posted!!

I put the saddle on mine for the first time a few days ago, she didn't care at all.
This is not her saddle btw, I havn't got mine yet so I had to borrow one.








Treat for great behavior :)
