I do like Dutch Warmbloods, wanted to breed my Thoroughbred several years ago to Inferno/Corrado II, but ended up selling her instead, and back in I believe 2006 Inferno had to be put down :(. I knew someone at my old barn who bred (very small time) Dutch Warmbloods, and I loved her horses, though they were a bit difficult to work with. I am starting to get more knowledge on other warmblood breeds as well, because I do love warmbloods in general, and hope to someday own one.

Dressagebelle - notice you're in CA. Not sure if you'd be interested, but thought I'd mention it. The KWPN annual general meeting is being held in CA this year, a little ways from San Diego as it's in Hanford but it might be worth the trip? Especially if you're looking to learn more about warmbloods, even in general. It's March 24-26. Thursday is going to be a tribute to the stallion Idocus with a number of big name riders speaking (such a Steffen Peters).

Then Friday/Saturday is all educational seminars on how to select riding horses (both dressage and jumper). What to look for both under saddle and free. Ideal confirmation, movement etc now that is somewhat breed specific to the Dutch standards, but they are some of the highest standards in the world and really can be applied to most warmbloods for sport.

*Riding is not a sport, it is a passion. If you do not share the passion, you do not know the sport, and therefore are wasting your time*

Hey thanks so much for the info. I will definitely have to look into it. I am taking my mare sometime next year to an Oldenburg rating (?), and seeing where she ranks, and what they think of her in terms of sport horse breeding.

I do not know KWPN lines, however Reeco is half KWPN. He is by a stallion called Euro center sergio who is of Samber lines.

This is Reeco's breeding:
If anyone can help fill in the blanks I'd appreciate it!

My mare is 3/4 Dutch WB. Her sire is Odilon, who is by Inspekteur. She has Patrick on her dam's side. Is anyone familiar with the Odilon / Inspekteur lines?

I find the comments regarding Dutch warmbloods to be difficult interesting. My mare is a pretty intricate ride. She's got a big attitude, is pretty hot and is definitely not a push button horse. I love her, but she's definitely a challenge.

Reeco is sharp. there isn't a nasty bone in his body but he is incredibly sharp for a young horse. Today I put him in his stable, and was just about to take his headcollar off when some snow fell off the back of his stable and made a noise. He was out through the door and half way down the yard before I'd even registered that there was a spooky noise.
yet in otherways, like with traffic he is totaly and utterly unflappable.

I have a distinct feeling that when I finaly manage to get on him he may have me on the floor a few time just due to the speed of his reactions to spooky things!

Smile Royal Dutch

Hi all, hope you are enjoying a great holiday season! I love the Royal Dutch horses (KWPN). I bought my first one in 1997, an imported stallion! He was a bit of a nut case when he came, but a year later you'd never had known he'd been a bad boy for awhile. Elenore Elstone showed him in the early 90's. We still miss him! My husband is not a horse person, and his comment when asked about which is our best stallionshe says the one that is dead. He formed a very strong bond with him. He was by Kristal out of a Doruto dam. So...began our dutch infusion into our trakehner and tb mare base. Then, I was very very fortunate to purchase an imported I-1 mare by Zalmeco. She is absolutely awesome...the most miserable mare to men (although improving) and generally a grouch, but bring out the saddle and this mare goes into a slavering let's go attitude. She is now finally loving the pasture life that goes with living at our house. We just bought another KWPN stallion, (Idocus x Kristal)....and my gosh...we're in love with him too. Although I know for a fact that he was highly testosterone loaded as a youngster!! I've ridden him a bit, and looking forward to more in 2011. Of course, we still have trakehners, and I love them as well for their lofty suspension, soft backs and great rideability! Hooked on KWPN for my CWHBA breeding program, and riding.

Ill take a hanoverian over a dutch but i really do like dutch warmbloods a lot. The 2 i have ridden where hot but seemed smart enough lol. i like the look they have and they tend to have a high neck set i have noticed. I prefer the dutch for jumping a hano for dressage though.

One of my friends has a 17hh Dutch Warmblood, I wouldn't get on him haha you have to be incredibly strong to slow him up on the flat, but he's a grand prix showjumper (before my friend bought him) he doesn't seem that big though.
