    Default Old style DWBs

    Anyone breeding, or know who is, breeding the "old style" heavier DWB horses?

    I had a gelding I adored and can't find another with the bone he had.

    Or the big old moose head.

    Anyone?

    We have two older style Dutch mares (one o/o a high % Gelderlander dam) and a Dutch cross mare in our breeding program; however, due to market demand have been crossing them on more modern boys. I do like the old style Dutch WBs though!

    Check out Lazy J Sporthorses. She has 2 Dutch mares with some Gelder blood. Had a beautiful filly out of one of her mares by Ijsselmeer Ikepono. I see the filly's pics on Facebook, I think she's 2 now and has a lot of substance. They did a repeat breeding and currently she has the full sibling, for sale. Scroll down to Hilfiger, http://lazyjsporthorses.com/Youngstock.html

    Couldn't help myself, had to come back and link to a picture of the filly, there's a few more pics of her in the album

    I am breeding KWPN Gelders horses as well as German Oldenburg. I currently have 3 Gelders mares and a weanling filly who earned very high scores at the KWPN-NA keuring and was rated the top dressage young horse at the Ontario inspection. I am expecting another Gelders foal late in May. There aren't too many of us in North America who are maintaining the older bloodlines.

    Have you looked at the Dutch Harness Horses? They are the "other" type of horse the KWPN registers. The Gelderlander base stock with Hackney Horse and to a smaller part Saddlebred used for outcross/improvement blood. But they tend to have a higher % Gelderlander than most Dutch Warmblood Riding type horses. Besides showing in fine harness type classes they are very popular for combined driving and many have made dressage mounts and even show jumpers.

    This is a Facebook picture, so I hope you can see it. This is a Dutch Harness Horse mare whose owner decided to train her as a jumper (he also fox hunts her) https://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphot...52474216_n.jpg She was the 2012 United States Hunter Jumper Assoc. Zone 7 Champion Horse of the Year- High Adult Division. Here is a standing photo of the same mare https://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphot...10452104_n.jpg And here she was in Holland, one of the top mares at her Harness Horse keuring https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphot..._5213590_n.jpg If you can't see the pics find Thomas D Neese on FB and ask him about Ugone! Added- I found video of Ugone http://youtu.be/DOgylxc8Tjg http://youtu.be/Y76UWElOjc0

    This is also a Dutch Harness Horse http://youtu.be/VawFkVMHRg8 Constance Menard and Lianca

    Chester Weber's Jamaica (as well as several other horses on his team) is also a Dutch Harness Horse (half Hackney to be exact, being by the Hackney Horse Cambridge Cole) http://www.chesterweber.com/hjamaica.html

    I have some older dutch bloodlines in my mares, big solid girls, some of them have the older style heads, but as others have said, to meet current market demands I breed them to very modern style stallions. The more typey heads,and leggier long lined type is what most people want

    Be still my heart, these are the horses I truly love! The old style Dutch horses, the Gelders blood, the Tuigpaard horses that are heavy on the Gelders blood.

    I am ever so hopeful that the pendulum swings back this way, if only a little bit.

    It is wonderful to see you the breeders that still value them.

    Got one if you like pintos! Dam is older style gelders type...this guy has big bone and feet and the "noble head". Went against the trend that year and bred to a less "modern" stallion. It paid off...inspection scores were our best yet!

    For what it's worth, I believe that Lianca is straight Gelders.

    That DHH mare Ugone is impressive!

    Lianca is in the Harness Horse book. Up until the mid-90s there were horses in the Harness Horse book that had no improvement blood, but were bred from the traditional fancy trotting driving lines in Holland. Lianca's sire, an approved Tuigpaard (Harness Horse) http://hengsten.kwpn.nl/HengstenInfo...D=eaq7WNR/XEs=

    The last approved stallion in the Harness Horse book that was 100% Dutch was Fortissimo (although if I remeber right he was watchlisted).

    Also I managed a small Ducth Harness Horse breeding program that had the mare Etinkie keur preferent prestatie who was 100% Dutch. Her full brother was a Grand Prix dressage horse in Holland in the early '90s (Atuur). Her great-grandson now stands in America (Waldemar http://www.horsetelex.nl/horses/pedigree/120758) http://youtu.be/hOtCsXKRt1M

    LOL, DWB is the abbreviation for Danish Warmblood. If you want Dutch Warmblood, you probably need to look for KWPN horses.

    But speaking of Danish horses, the Danish Oldenburg is a heavy, old style type of horse (not a Danish-bred "German Oldenburg" horse - it's a totally different registry and type of horse). There is also the Fredericksborg horse, but they tend to be more coach style horses.

    Default KWPN , not DWB wrong abbreviation

    Thanks for all the replies, I do mean Dutch Warmblood. Most of you were thoughtful enough to figure it out.

    The Dutch Harness horses are lovely, but tend toward the hot side. Someone suggested an Irish Draught, and while lovely and big boned, aren't quite what I'm looking for. That and all the ones have the conformation I have in mind are enormous.

    The pictures you've linked to are lovely.

    I'll find what I want eventually, it will probably be someone's disapointment and exactly what I'm looking for.

    I have been around quite a few of them in the combined driving world and haven't necessarily found this to be true. Sure, some are (as are some in all breeds/lines), but most I've known don't seem to be.

    You could contact Debbie Harrison and see if she has anything that fits the bill. http://www.liolomasdutchwarmbloods.com/

    Mine certainly is. He's actually DWB (Danish) x KWPN (Dutch harness), and it's tough to tell where the hotness comes from. He's a great GP dressage horse though, as is one of Lauren Spreiser's horses. And he's settled down quite a bit as he's gone up the levels, for what it's worth.

    The KWPN continue to develop and refine the Gelderlander as a modern day horse suitable for the amateur market, the real old Dutch horses are the Groninger Paard

    We have Farrington here who is one of the few riding type KWPN stallions that when crossed with a Gelders mare can get gelders papers for the foal. I love his line. I breed for the modern type but with good bone and size. Not so much the heads you describe.

    I couldn't agree more!!!! Would love to see more pics of real old style Gelder horses (or any Dutch!)

    Here is a CHUNK of a KWPN mare that I saw for sale locally. Saved the pic without the name of horse - darn. But talk about old type (not Modern at ALL)
