Oldenburg Description
  The Oldenburg is a fairly large, very powerful, docile animal bred in Germany. Traditionally they were bred as carriage horses, but are now being used for show-jumping, dressage and three day events. The Oldenburg is known for their kind character and willingness to work hard under saddle. Their consistency in conformation as well as their power also make them very popular. They are bred from stallions from a variety of other breeds. They have a compact body, with fairly short legs and short cannons. Their hindquarters and neck are very muscular and they have a deep chest. They can appear in a variety of colors, but black or dark brown are the most common.
