Denmark is the country of origin of the Danish Warmblood horse. The alternative name is Dansk Varmblod and previously it was known as the Danish Sports Horse. Although the horse breeding was very popular in Denmark a long time ago and dates even back to the 14th century, it became famous at the end of the last century, as one of the most popular countries for breeding first-class sports horses.

Breeders made great efforts by selective and special breeding methods until they achieved the final desired combination of horse breeds that will represent the Danish Warmblood. Holsteiner and Frederiksborg is the base of this new breed. Initially, they were crossed with Thoroughbred in order to produce a sound, quality riding horse that will be of excellent confirmation and slightly durable. Later bloodlines of Anglo-Norman, Trakehner, Wielkopolski, Selle Francais, Swedish Warmblood and more Thoroughbred were added to the resultant mares of the above-mentioned crossbreed.

Hanoverian blood was notably absent, so it could be distinct from the other warmbloods. The first Danish Warmblood stud book was opened in 1962 and horses had to meet rigorous high standards, so they can be registered in the breed registry book.
