About Vlaamperd HorsesAbout Vlaamperd Horses



Vlaamperds are nearly extinct horses that were developed forrndraft and riding purposes in South Africa. They were developed in the WesternrnCape from a 19th century horse called the Hantam Horse. The Hantam Horse camernabout by crossing Arabians, Thoroughbreds, and local Cape mares. More recently,rnFriesian stallions were bred with Hantam Mares as were Oldenburgs and ClevelandrnBays. The resulting Vlamperd have emerged as a good natured horse breed withrngraceful conduct and a stylish high stepping action. 

They can be used underrnsaddle or in harness. The name is derived from the Afrikaans for Flanders'rnHorse - the country from which a number of Friesian stallions were laterrnexported to improve the breed.

rnrnA famous stallion, "Scheepers," bred and owned byrnthe family van der Merwe of Kwaggasfontein, Sutherland (1930) and sold to Mr.rnH. Serdyn from Riebeeck West in the Boland in 1942, had the greatest influencernon the breeding and development of the Vlaamperd.rnrn 

rnrnThe SA Vlaamperd Breeder's Society was formed inrnBloemfontein in 1983. The South African Vlaamperd is an established,rnindependent breed and considered a precious asset of South Africa that deservesrngreat recognition.rnrn rnrn 

rnrnThey are found in black. Pale black and dark brown arernallowed in mares. They are 14.2-15.2 hh, good natured, graceful, stylish, highrnstepping action, adaptable, docile in disposition; and well conformed.
