The New Zealand Warmblood Association promotes the breeding, improvement, exhibition and participation in competition of the Warmblood horse.  Our objective is to ensure NZ Warmbloods are bred to produce:

  • horses capable of International Representation in the Olympic disciplines of Dressage, Showjumping and Eventing
  • a noble, correctly built Warmblood horse with good rideability, capable of superior performance in all disciplines.
  • a horse with natural impulsion and elastic movements.
  • a horse which because of its temperament, character and willingness, is suited as an all round riding horse on the basis of its natural ability.

The term "Warmblood" encompasses multiple middle weight breeds originating from Europe, particularly Germany. They include Oldenburg, Hanoverian, Selle Français, Dutch Warmblood (KWPN), Rheinlander , Holsteiner and Westfalian and the German Warmblood Pony.

Having a New Zealand Warmblood gives you the flexibility to select from a range of approved studbooks to breed "the best from the best."
