History [ edit ]

The Hanoverian has gone trough many changes over throughout the time. His evolution is very marked by the war. It was stocky in the 8th century, short during Middle Age and with progress in the military weaponry, the need for a lighter and agile horse arose. When he was no more needed in wars, he became a farm horse and when sport horses became a trend, the Hanoverian adapted yet once more.

The foundation of the state stud in Celle, Germany, in 1735 was the first step for the establishment of the breed. In the next 100 years the breed was improved: Neapolitan, Holsteins and Andalusian horses were the first breeds to be used and then later, it was also introduced Thoroughbred and Cleveland Bay’s blood. The Hanoverian breed was established in 1888 as one of the best warmbloods.
