Gelderland Horses for sale on ehorses

Now that coach or carriage driving is no longer an everyday sight, there are fewer opportunities for the public to see draught and harness horses at work. However, that’s not the only reason a team of high-stepping Gelderland horses drawing a vehicle makes people stop and stare. These tall horses with the proud head carriage are exceptionally impressive light draught Warmbloods, and that is one of the main reasons people buy a Gelderland. Their contribution to other equestrian activities, particularly show jumping, is less well known. Experienced breeders and trainers who sell a Gelderland fully appreciate the extent of their athletic capabilities. They are very friendly horses, too!

Use and characteristics of Gelderland Horses

The Gelderland has contributed immensely to the modern Dutch warmblood and is one of the key components of the studbook. They are usually between 15.2 hands (62 inches/157 cm) and 16 hands (64 inches/163 cm) high, although in recent years larger Gelderlands have been used more often for competing and in commercial coach and carriage driving. This means it’s now easier to buy a Gelderland of 17 hands high (68 inches/173 cm) or more. Many are chestnut colored, though black and gray are also popular. In the harness world, colored horses (also known as tobiano, or piebald and skewbald) are extremely stylish, and there’s always plenty of interest when participants sell a Gelderland with one of these eye-catching coat patterns.

Origin and history of breeding Gelderland Horses

The breed originated in the Dutch province of Gelderland, an agricultural region in the center of the Netherlands. The original Gelderland horse, or Gelderlander, was bred to be a good all-around farm horse that also had an impressive presence when in harness. The foundation mares were local and from early times onward, stallions of the outstanding European breeds of the period such as Andalusians, Neapolitans, and Anglo-Normans were used. In the nineteenth century, Thoroughbred, Norfolk Roadster, East Friesian, Oldenburg Horses, and Hackney Horses were added to the mix, along with Holsteiner Horses and, later, Selle Français. The Dutch breeders had an open and practical approach to breeding and this brought great results. The outcome was a very distinctive horse, with a ground-covering, elevated trot, high head-carriage, and outstanding presence. In profile, their long heads are straight or convex, often giving them a noble, Roman-nosed look. Breeders selected for horses with white facial markings and white legs, as these add to the overall impression of flashing, lively movement as the Gelderlands trot down the road. They have excellent feet and are usually very healthy, long-lived horses. Another notable feature of the breed is the high withers at the end of their beautifully arched necks. The success of the modern Gelderland is also a testament to the ability of its breeders to adapt, particularly when increasing mechanization threatened the horses with extinction in the post-WWII period. This was when the first Dutch warmblood sports horses began to make itself a name in international competition, and a new studbook, the Warmbloed Paarden-stamboek in Nederland, was set up. This gained royal recognition from Queen Beatrix in 1988 and now the general term KWPN is applied to all Dutch warmbloods, including Gelderlands.

Gelderland Horses in equestrianism

In addition to competitive and pleasure driving, long-striding Gelderlands are successful show jumpers. The Dutch Jumping Champion Gondelier cleared 7'3" (2.20 meters) in 1972. They are also great in dressage, competing at Grand Prix level. Their individual registry has now been restored within the KWPN studbook, where they are rightly known as the Gelderlander Versatility Horse.
