[ INDEX ] Equine Type: Horse Breed: Moravian Warmblood (Moravian WB)   [ PREV ] [ NEXT ]
The Moravian Warmblood is a sport warmblood breed originated in the Czech Republic.

The Moravian Warmblood was developed during the 18th and 19th centuries in Moravia, by crossing various Austro-Hungarian breeds, mainly Kisber-Flever, Shagya-Arabian, Nonius, Furioso, and Gidran. Moravian Warmbloods roamed Czechoslovakia until 1971, when they were absorbed into the Czech Warmblood breed, and as such the 'Moravian Warmblood' ceased to exist.

In 2004, it was decided to recreate the Moravian Warmblood by crossing Czech Warmbloods with some of the Hungarian breeds that were originally used to create the Moravian Warmblood, as well as with Slovak Warmbloods. Therefore, the Moravian Warmblood was declared a separate breed (rather than a subtype within the Czech Warmblood,) and a dedicated breeding program was initiated. Today, this breed is still being worked on.

While Moravian Warmbloods in real life are allowed to be crossed with their foundation breeds, in Horse Isle the Moravian Warmblood is already fully established, and therefore has a closed studbook (meaning that no crossbreeding it allowed.)

The conformation of Moravian Warmbloods is similar to that of other sport warmbloods, especially because of the heavy influence that the Czech Warmblood had on the Moravian one. The breeding programs aims at breeding Moravian Warmbloods with an athletic build which will allow them to serve as sport horses.

Moravian Warmbloods come in the colors of bay, black, brown, chestnut, and grey. The coat is always solid. They stand between 15.2hh and 16.2hh.
