Holsteiner horses originatedrnin Germany several centuries ago and are probably the oldest German warmbloodrnhorse. Holsteiner horses have German, Neapolitan, Spanish, and orientalrnbloodlines and were very popular in the 17th century in Italy, France, andrnDenmark. During the 19th century Holsteiner horses were crossed with YorkshirernCoach Horses and Cleveland Bay stallions to produce a tough, active, handsomerncarriage horse with a willing nature and distinctive high knee action. The alsornbecome popular as an army mount.

rnrnIn 1867 the Prussians founded the Traventhall Stud inrnSchleswig-Holstein where the breeding of modern day Holsteiner horses began.rnToday the main breeding center is located in Elmshorn, Germany. After World WarrnII some Thoroughbred blood was introduced to produce a lighter, more refinedrnhorse with a better shoulder. In comparison to other warmbloods Holsteiners arernonly bred in relatively small numbers with little variations.
