    Default Russian Warmblood

    Not sure if this should be posted in here....

    We have been looking for a jumper and have found the perfect horse. It's a Russian Warmblood, which I have never heard of. Can anyone tell me about this breed or point to somewhere that can?

    Thanks!

    There are different types of Russian WB's. I have an Orlov-Rostopchin, which is actually a Russian Riding horse and he is world class. Tell us more about this horse and maybe I can point you in the right direction.

    Default Help with Russian Riding Horses

    One of our boarders is a preservation breeder of the Russian Riding
    Horse, the Orlov-Rostopshin. She has told me they are bred for
    dressage and jumping. All the ones here are black or black bay.
    If the horse in question is black, perhaps it is a member of that
    type. You can email me and I will pass on the contact information
    for this lady if you are interested. I am sure she can tell you quite
    a bit about the breed; I know she loves them.

    I thought the Orlovs were gray. An endurance rider in CA years ago won the Tevis Cup on an Orlov. I thought they looked magnificent and wanted one but they are kind of rare in NA, aren't they? Black would be even better though. :-)

    ... and don't forget those WONDERFUL budyonnys! There are less than 30 budyonnys in the US, and we're lucky enough to own one. I do the amateur owner jumpers with mine.

    O-R are bred to be black and are bred for dressage. They are amazing horses and very rare. If it is chestnut it may be a budyonnys, they tend to be jumpers.

    I believe Rhythmical Nona Garson's grand prix mount was a Russian warmblood. I know his brother Susdal, whom a friend of mine purchased and he was an awesome very catlike jumper.

    I don't believe there is a breed actually called a Russian WB.

    But there are breeds used in Russia for dressage/jumping/eventing -- several of them.

    There actually is a Russian Warmblood, prior to the break up of the Soviet Union, Russian horses were bred on communes, the Russian Warmbloods were bred in Latvia. The first ones were brought over in the late 80s, there were 36 of them, one was a stallion. I ended up with 4 of them. They had papers.

    Yes, there is a russian warmblood and they have their own registry. Recently they announced they would be inspecting horses in the U.S. as well. Their website however has been hacked or something.

    They developed, again like all the other warmblood registries (except the U.S.) by using native mare bases with hotbloods. In Russia, they used some Akel-Teke as well for the hot-blood infusion and they are very forthright that draught type horses were used in the creation. Russian warmblood were also imported into Sweden and were used in swedish warmblood breeding.

    A friend who bought a very classy TB filly from us a couple years ago now has said young mare in foal to this guy

    I was a bit intrigued by the description of his registration(s). He may be a good cross on the mare, though - and we hope the resultant foal is nice.

    earlybird,

    What color is the guy you're looking at?

    I'd love to find another budyonny - he's quite talented and has this edge to him. Hard to explain...

    Could he possibly be a Russian Trakehner?

    Those are some more pictures of him, he almost looks like an arab in some of those pictures....
    I am going to the farm tomorrow so maybe I can get more details on his specific breeding.
