Warmblood Horses are middle-weight types and breeds. They originated in continental Europe. Quarter Horses, Morgans and American Saddlebreds are just few of the many Warmblood horses, which have been bred into very high standards in the U.S. Here we are going to talk about the American Warmblood Horse, also known as a sport horse.
