About Gelderlander Horses
Gelderlander horses are from The Netherlands. Originally
they were bred for the solely for ram work, but over time they were bred with
Thoroughbred horses, as well as other breeds such as Anglo Norman, Hackney, and
Oldenburgs. Over time they have been used for farm work, for competitions, as
carriage horses, military use, and even transporting heavy loads. Today they can
be found in The Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, and Amsterdam.
They have a convex profile, are 16 hands tall, and are
incredibly strong. They also have a high set tail with a long mane and good
feet. They are bred for chestnut and gray.
