Breed Released: April 3, 2010 Found On: Lava Isles
Development of the Warlander began in the 1990s. The Andalusian and Friesian were crossed to produce a flexible, balanced baroque type horse for modern dressage. The Friesian added sound temperament, impulsion and size; the Andalusian gave elasticity and lightness. In more recent years, the Lusitano has been used to widen the color range of the Warlander, and some are now breeding "Painted Warlanders." The horse is proud and elegant but not particularly hot, and perfectly suited to international level dressage. It also makes an excellent riding and driving horse. The Warlander is found only on the lava isles and its heights are typically 15-17hh.
