In 1787 the still existing stud at Neustadt on the Dosse was founded. The breed was intended to be a multi-purpose warmblood horse, heavy enough for all farming uses and light enough as carriage horse.
After the second world war the breed was re-built based on Hanoverian and Trakehner stallions, the breed is not longer aiming for a heavy warmblood horse but for the sport horse type nowadays desired everywhere.
Exterior: Medium sized head, well set neck of medium length, straight and strong back, well-muscled, rather long croup. Strong legs. Size: Around 165 cm Usage: Riding and driving horse with quiet temper Colour: Mainly bay
