History:

The first flowering of Holstein horsebreeding already eventuated during the early Middle Ages. At that time the Holstein horses were mighty war horses. A decisive influence was exercised on the breed by Oriental, Spanish and Neapolitan stallions. During the second half of the twentieth century, a re-breeding process took place away from the heavy agriculturally utilised warmblood to the modern sports horse, through the increased use of English thoroughbred stallions.

Breeding:

In 1999 the breeding stock comprised 6.633 registered broodmares and 203 stallions, of which 74 belong to the Holstein Breeder's Association and 112 are private stallions. Holstein is the only breeding region in Germany that disposes over its own "Association" owned stallions. The Association is based at the Riding and Driving School of Elmshorn, where the sales centre is also situated. The auction sites are located in Neumünster and Elmshorn.

Features:

Holsteiners are vigorous horses that are prepared to perform and which can often be found in top performance sport. They belong to the best showjumpers word-wide and are utilised in all the German horse breeds for the genetic transmittance of jumping ability and manner.
