    I've seen WB on sale in my area (by the person I know) for $2 or 3K.

    Around here, there seams to be wb snobbery. If it's not imported........you get my drift.

    The ones bred from TOP bloodlines by the farms that know which line goes with which line will cost more.

    Just as there are backyard breeders out there, there are also breeders that breed warmbloods (the real kind) to other warmbloods (the real kind) without really knowing which line goes best with another. And while they are true warmbloods many are simply not top quality.

    Then we have those that breed the fake warmbloods, calling them warmblood because they bred a "hot" with a "cold".

    I've seen this one wayyy too many times. Someone breeds a Percheron to a Morgan, and suddenly they have a warmblood!

    If I was eventing I'd get a TB.

    But I do think inspections are the way to go when it comes to judging horses. Bloodlines certainly aren't everything; even two good horses can have a dud foal. Competitions are too subjective; a lot depends on the judge and on what other horses show up on the day. The advantage of inspections is that every horse is judged against the same standard.

    How were warmbloods originally 'created'? By selectively breeding the hotter breeds so you get both athleticism and a quieter nature? I get that you can't just take a hot blood + cold blood = warmblood, but were the colder breeds an influence at any point in time? Or are warmbloods all...hot?

    Warmbloods did not come from drafts. They came from the carriage type horse that was usable for both farm and riding...with added selective breeding using one area's (state) foundation mare population with the best suited (or desired stallion) on them.

    But to truly understand the warmblood you need to understand that Germany is very much a horse oriented country and the warmblood is not a breed but a breed population defined by the likes and dislikes of that state's administrator's desire to have the best riding horse over the state next to it.

    True. The horse I was talking about was registered, but not enthusiastic about jumping/eventing, so the owner wanted to get rid of him. I don't have email with ad anymore to check the lines, but I highly doubt anything spectacular. All I was trying to say is there are cheap ones too out there. Same with, say, qh. The finished reiner or cutter costs lots of money. Which doesn't mean all of them do.

    My first horse was a CZ Warmblood. Big, very typical WB look, imported, painfully overpriced, the whole bit.... but my second horse is paint and WB cross and he's my soul mate. I literally bought him out of someone's backyard. So sometimes all the bloodlines, money, and importing in the world doesn't make for a great horse.

    I ride a warmblood at the barn occasionally, he's like a well oiled machine that boy....
    Oakhill ranch is down the road from me, Richard Freeman breeds Danish Warmbloods and has for years now, and I LOVE to just go sit and watch the trainer works and the Kuering.
