The Oberlander Horse is a horse that is well known in the South German state of Bavaria, although not very well known in other places of the world.
About 4000 horses of the Oberlander breed are currently found in Bavaria. Mares and stallions must pass rigorous tests in conformation and riding to be allowed to breed.
The Oberlander Horse performance test does not have a riding test in it. It has log skidding, stone boat pulling, and a single carriage portion. During all of these parts of testing the conformation and temperament are also scored. Stallions’ tests are different than mares and more rigorous to pass.
These are the horse breeds considered to be wholly or partly of German origin.
Many have complex or obscure histories, so inclusion here does not necessarily imply that a breed is predominantly or exclusively German.
