Origins and attitudes
Horse from Holland. It comes from the crossing of indigenous mares (Gelderland) with Andalusian, Napolitani, Norman and Norfolk-Roadster stallions; in the 19th century the breed benefited from Anglo-Norman, Oldenburg and Hackney blood intakes. Today we tend to use it in crossbreeds with other saddle horses (in particular English Thoroughbred) to enhance the qualities of a sport horse.
Saddle horse and light shooting, currently used in tourism and equestrian sports (agile and good jumper).
