welcome to the NZWA
The New Zealand Warmblood Association promotes the breeding, improvement, exhibition and participation in competition of the Warmblood horse. Our objective is to ensure NZ Warmbloods are bred to besuitable for performance in dressage, show jumping, eventing and driving, displaying qualities of correct conformation, jumping style and technique, correct movement with impulsion, balance and cadence and have suitable character and temperament .
The term "Warmblood" encompasses multiple middle weight breeds originating from Europe, particularly Germany. They include Oldenburg, Hanoverian, Selle Français, Dutch Warmblood (KWPN), Rheinlander , Holsteiner and Westfalian and the German Warmblood Pony.
Having a NZ Warmblood gives you the flexibility to select from a range of approved studbooks to breed "the best from the best."
More than a Horse Show
The SI show will now be held on the weekend of 12th and 13th March 2016 at the National Equestrian Centre, McLeans Island. This time though it just won’t be a horse show – I will be aiming to have dressage and show turnout seminars on one day, the classification with Gerd possibly both days depending on numbers as well as a dinner on the Saturday night for people and judges. SO - it's a big job but I'm excited! I have also confirmed that our wonderful main sponsor - Academy Funerals is still very keen to sponsor for next year. So bring it on! more news
