This horse takes its name from the Nordrhein-Westfalen region of North West Germany. It was originally used as a work horse and then as an military mount before being turned into what is now a very athletic sports horse. This was achieved with the introduction of Arab, Thoroughbred and Hanoverian blood which gave the horse speed, stamina and power combined with a sound temperament.
