Hands up everybody who knows the Rottaler horse 🙋🏼♀️ our maybe I should say hands up for everybody who DOES NOT KNOW this magnificent breed?
The Rottaler horse is one of the oldest warmblood breeds in Germany, dating back to the Middle Ages. They can be of heavy warmblood type, but also of a lighter type, since they were universally used by the farmers for riding, driving or even field work. In the 1960s the Rottaler breed got absorbed by the modern sportive warmblood breeding and the „R“ was changed into a „B“, for Bavarian warmblood. Only 1994 a small group revitalised the breed with only 22 horses left and reintroduced the studbook. Rottaler are bred by the mare line and nowadays the population counts 80 horses. The breed is critically endangered and struggles to survive. I wonder again and again, why the government, the breeding associations and the equestrian world don’t really care about their oldest and native breeds, which played such an important role for the modern warmblood breeding. .
I however enjoyed my Rottaler weekend and feel amazed by these horses. On the pictures is Lucanus, one of three Rottaler stallions left. He has a very typical coat for the breed, blackish bay with no markings. .
