History:

The history of Bavarian horsebreeding can be traced back into the first millennium A.D. The centre of horse breeding in the recent past was in the Bavarian Rottal Valley (Rott is a tributary of the river Inn). The predecessor of the Bavarian Warmblood horse was the "Rottaler", a horse of the heavy warmblood type. Apart from the utilisation of English and French breeds, Oldenburg stallions have had the greatest influence on the breed. The increasing motorization of agriculture in the 1950ies resulted in the almost complete disappearance of the Rottaler. The new breeding goal of a versatile riding horse was conceived predominantly through upgrading with thoroughbreds and Trakehners. In addition to this, new mare lines were established on the basis of fillies and mares acquired from the different German selective breeding areas. The stock of stallions is meanwhile also largely based on bloodlines from Hanover, Holstein, Oldenburg and Westphalia.

Breeding: 

In 1999 the numbers of this breed comprised 4.492 broodmares and 194 stallions. The breeding centre is the Bavarian state stud of Schwaiganger. The auction centre and approvals site for the state association "Landesverband Bayrischer Pferdezüchter" is at the Olympic sports grounds in Munich-Riem.

Features:

A versatile riding horse with good character that is prepared to perform. Bavarian Warmbloods are represented in competition sport and leisure time riding and at times also in top performance sport.
