Hi Horse Pals,
So this one was a bit harder to guess, eh? He He. This week's Horse is the Dutch Warmblood and he is a beauty!
Fact #1: The Dutch Warmblood is a relatively young breed that was created in the 1900s in the Netherlands and combines the best elements of both the Gelderlander and the Groningen with the English Thoroughbred.
Fact #2: The Dutch Warmblood is possibly the most successful of the competition breeds.
One of its own has the title of world's most successful show jumper and one of the most famous dressage partnerships of all time was Jennie Loriston-Clarke and Dutch Warmblood, Dutch Courage.
Fact #3: Dutch Warmbloods are usually bay, gray, chestnut or black in color and stand between 15.3 and 16.3 hands.
Fact #4: The Dutch Warmblood is a strong and athletic breed, known for its calm temperament.
Fact #5: A Dutch Warmblood stallion named Brego played Aragorn’s steed in all three Lord of the Rings movies.
I think this is one of the most beautiful breeds of all! I love how they jump and how they move! I hope you enjoyed this highlight as much as I did!
So, for this week's clue ... this horse is a large one! Good luck!
Your Horse Pal,
