For Those of You Who Know About Warmbloods.....
At what age to they stop growing? I'm wondering about Hanoverians actually. I've heard they don't stop until around 10 but I'm not sure I believe that :?

sorry spirithorse, I don't have that answer.

I just wanted to say I was glad to see you on here again. :)

That seems a bit much. They may continue to fill out, but mature height is more like 6 or 7 years.

Generally speaking, they will usually be completely mature in height by about 7 years old, but will continue to fill out and broaden up for another couple of years. I bought my last gelding at 5 at 17hh and he grew another inch (17.1hh) by the time he was 7.
Of course, if you have a shorter warmblood, this won't be true.

Thanks guys! :) I figured that 10 years was a bit much but I just wanted to make sure! I knew you guys would have the answer! lol.
