About Iberian Warmblood HorsesAbout Iberian Warmblood Horses



Iberian Warmbloods are sport horses that have a minimum ofrn25% Andalusian and/or Lusitano bloodlines from one or both of their parents.rnThe ancestors of these horses include the primitive Sorraia horse, which aroundrn900 B.C., was mixed with horses from Northern Africa. The Sorraia, perhaps thernoldest breed of horse, is depicted in early cave paintings found on the IberianrnPeninsula.rnrn 

rnrnBreeders of dressage and show jumping horses have long beenrnseeking a way to breed a horse with greater sensitivity and a greater abilityrnfor the collection required for piaffe, passage, and jumping. The Iberian bloodrnstrengthens the horse's soundness, athleticism, and versatility. When bred tornother breeds with the big stride for dressage, or the power and speed forrnjumping, the result is the Iberian Warmblood.rnrn 

Light horses are grouped in a couple of different ways, onernbeing the continent or country where they originated from. They are alsorngrouped according to training, classified as a stock type, hunter type, saddlerntype, or 'other'. A body type is generally attributed to each class, with thern'other' classification being a bit of an odd ball. It includes those that arerncolor breeds or those that may fit a body type of one of the training classes,rnbut not be used for that type of training. In some cases the 'other' types canrnalso include those that may fit into more than one of the type groups.

rnrnIberian Warmbloods are a sport horse, the horse class thernIberian Warmblood fits into is the 'hunter' type class. They are developed forrnperformance in disciplines such as eventing, dressage, and show jumping.rnrn 

rnrnIberian Warmbloods have a long sloping shoulder and a wellrnmuscled, long arm bone giving them increased ability in lateral movement andrnjumping. They exhibit great ability to flex its joints and bring their legsrnunder their center of gravity. They have good bone density and a short canonrnbone with the hock slightly higher than the knee. They have large, powerfulrnjoints with the stifle slightly lower than the elbow and in line below thernpoint of the hip.

rnrnThey have a tractable, intelligent demeanor. Most often theyrnare between 15 to 16.2 hands high and are found in a color.rnrn 

rnrnBecause of their intelligence and curiosity, IberianrnWarmbloods have a talent for opening gates and getting into trouble if kept inrnan unsafe environment; precautions must be made to horse-proof their living quarters. A good vitamin and mineral supplement as well as plentyrnof fresh hay and water should be made available regularly as they will burn offrncalories quickly due to a diligent work ethic.
