During the first world war the Oldenburg horses were used as carriage horses and artillery horses, by the time of the second world war they had been largely replaced by mechanization, following the war the Oldenburg breed were targeted towards equestrian sports again foreign horses were imported to again improve the breed, the first of which was Condor an Anglo-Norman stallion this was followed by a thoroughbred stallion Adonis xx. These stallions along with others where the cornerstone of many exceptional sport horses one of the first Oldenburg horses of note was Volturno who was a winner of a team silver medal in eventing at the 1976 Olympics. Other prominent imports include Furioso in 1968, Futuro in 1969 and the anglo Arabian stallion Zeus. With the advent of artificial insemination the Oldenburg studbook have continued to include bloodlines from other warmblood breeds from around Europe including Westphalian, Holsteiner, Trakehner, Selle Francais, BWP and KWPN among the many others, this is reflected by their slogan "Quality is the only standard that counts," which shows the liberal acceptance and wide variety of colours and bloodlines .
Super talented 3yo Oldenburg gelding by Richelshagen x Sunny Boy
This horse oozes quality. He has the most amazing trainable easy temperament. Loves people, loves work, throughout the entire backing process he never put a hoof wrong. The sort of horse that has read the book and already knows the job! So very talented and learns so quickly we turned him away for fear of pushing him to quickly! Stands approx. 16.1/16.2hh. Ready to bring back into work and prepare for the 4yo classes next year.
