Are you dazzled by the beauty and elegance of the imported European Warmblood Horses? I know that I certainly am! Many European warmbloods are the superior sport horse prospect and the ultimate athlete; centuries of recorded breeding ahead of North America. They have the style and potential to become your next hunter, jumper, dressage or eventing champion.

Unfortunately, most of the imported Warmblood horses also carry a relatively high price tag. If you are searching for a quality horse at an affordable price; perhaps you should consider the alternative of purchasing a North American crossbred Warmblood.

It is true! The European Warmblood horse is the 1st choice of many sport horse buyers searching to find a successful competition horse for such events as dressage, hunter, jumper or eventing. However, sometimes life circumstances dictate the price that a trainer or competitor is able to afford. This is when I recommend that you take a serious look at the crossbred Warmblood horses. Several dedicated breeders are cross-breeding Hanoverian, Dutch Warmblood, Oldenburg, etc. with Thoroughbred and Draft/TB. bloodlines to produce a very well-balanced and successful competition horse. Often, these horses have wonderful dispositions, beautiful movement, outstanding trainability and potential; plus they are a pleasure to own and show.
