[ INDEX ] Equine Type: Horse Breed: Modern Oldenburg [ PREV ] [ NEXT ]
The Modern Oldenburg was created in the 1960s, when Alt-Oldenburg horses were crossed with Thoroughbreds and other sport warmblood horses of various breeds, in order to make the Alt-Oldenburgs more athletic and better suited for Olympic disciplines.
A dressage marvel:
Modern Oldenburg horses are considered to be a bit heavier than most other European sport warmblood breeds, but nevertheless, they excel in eventing, show-jumping, and dressage. The latter is their specialty, and starting from 2016 (and as of 2020) the Oldenburg was constantly ranked as one of the top sport warmblood breeds for performing dressage.
