The Warlander horse officially began in 1990, when West Australian Karen-Maree’ Kaye of the Classical Sporthorse Stud - a devotee of Classical Equitation, began a dedicated breeding program, penned the first breed standard and named the breed.
The 'Warlander' is a hybrid of the pure Friesian and Iberian
horse breeds. The name 'Warlander' only applies to horses who have been
verified to meet the 'standard' and registered as such with the Warlander
Studbook. The Warlander is now found
world-wide including North and South America, Africa, Europe and it's country
of origin - Australia. For more information visit:
