what is a warmblood

We are having a discussion about what a warmblood is. I thought that means a thoroughbred crossed with a cold blood like a draft horse. I figure this is the perfect place to get the correct answer!

No all you get with that cross is a draft cross.

Hot + cold water = warm. HOT horse = Cold does NOT equal warm in any way.

It is a registered breed. You can't get a quarter horse by breeding together an Arab and a Paint, and neither can you cross a TB and a draft and get a WB

Okay, but are there not a lot of different warmbloods? I guess I am all wrong. I thought warmbloods were crosses of different breeds. Where did I get that idea? So is a warmblood just one breed, like a Quarter Horse? What is a Selle Francais then?

This website has a pretty good definition since you haven't gotten one yet:

Here in Europe the Warmblood is a loose term used to define many different breeds that are primarily used for competitions. Most of them can trace bloodlines back to the three arabian imports to the UK in times gone by ( goldolphin arabian / darley arabian / byerley turk ) . The warmblood is not a specific breed all by itself - there are dozens of breeds that could be described as a warmblood, and dozens of crossbred horses that don't have a 'breed designation' but are no doubt a warmblood.

The 2 horses pictured are a good example of this

One is a hungarian sportshorse that can trace her bloodlines from both parents to the aforementioned arabs - the other is no specific breed at all and can only trace her fathers bloodlines to the three.

Thanks Nutty Saddler and Solon. (That website was perfect.) No wonder I was confused. Alot of things make sense now that never did before. Still wondering if anyone has heard of a warmblood breed called a Selle Francais? I am completely making up the spelling on that. Although we are pretty low key trail riding people we end up mingling with others who do jumping and dressage and I end up hearing bits and pieces and it is nice to have clarification. You can get alot of misinformation if you ask the wrong person!

The above pretty well covers it.

Asking what is a warmblood is sort of like asking ' what is a sports car ' as opposed to what is a ferrari

The Selle Francais

The Selle francais basically means french saddle horse. A good example of this is Zeus who was one of my stallions grandparents.
