Holstein Horse Breed History and Holstein Facts

The Holstein Horse is a type of German Warmblood breed that first began showing up around the year of 1285 A.D. Holsteins descended from a mixture of horse breeds that originated in areas of Spain, Germany, and various oriental countries. The Holstein breed was a thickly built war and hunting horse during the time of the middle ages, but it wasn't until later on during the 19'th century that that Thoroughbreds and Yorkshire Coaches were added to the Holstein Horses in order to make Holsteins a leaner more agile breed fit for horseback riding.

Today, the Holstein horse breed has earned its name as one of the friendliest, easy to train and easy to ride horses.

The Holstein Horse Temperament

This German Warmblood breed exhibits a wonderful disposition that makes Holsteins a great horse of choice from layperson horse riders to expert horse riders. If there is any breed of horse is suited for horseback riding it's definitely the Holstein. For those who are looking to buy a horse that's sociable, responds well to horse training, is friendly, and truly loves people, I highly recommend searching for Holsteins for sale in your area!
