Oldenburg's have very distinctive faces....I don't think that's what she is. Does she has any brands or tattoos anywhere? The problem with "warmblood" is a lot of people market their horses as a "warmblood" when they really aren't. So unless they are registered with their breed organization or have brands, you never really know what they are.

Actually, there are TBs that are "Oldenburg approved" and thus can breed with Oldenburg stock to produce Oldenburgs. So if this is a WB, then yes, I would say Oldenburg.

Are there any brands or tatoos on the horse?

She really looks like a TB look under her top lip or bottom lip she might have a tatoo. She really looks TB or TB cross

I would definitely not classify her as an Oldenburg. I work with one on a regular basis, and this mare looks nothing like him at all. I would say a TB cross. She could be a Trakehner. The ones I've seen look startlingly similar to TBs.

It is very hard to say, but from the looks of her I definitely wouldn't call her a "true" Oldenburg, meaning a full Oldenburg. I could possibly see her being an Oldenburg/TB cross, possibly a Trakehner, but if I had to guess I would just say TB - I have seen many TB's built alot like her. The problem with warmbloods now a days is just about everything is considered a warmblood - such as TB crosses and even draft crosses. Yes, it is true they are considered WB's, but when I say WB I'm talking about full Warmblood breeds and not crosses, so it is just so hard to tell what is a true WB and what is a WB cross anymore without papers, tattoos, or brands.
