Rhenanian Warmblood

The Rhineland, neighbouring region to Westphalia, was formerly Germany's leading draft horse breeding region. After the decline of the draft horse breeding the region started breeding warmblood horses, based on Trakehner, Hanoverian and Westphalian bloodlines. The Rhineland breeding is closely connected to the Westphalian breeding activities.

The state stallions of the Westphalian state stud at Warendorf had a large influence on the development of the Rhineland warmblood, which wears a brand of its own, however.
