The Czech Warmblood (Český teplokrevník in Czech) is a horse breed from the Czech Republic.
The Czech Warmblood is a robust, powerful horse bred with strong bones. The breed has a strong neck on an elegant body, a broad, long back, and good hooves, though they are sometimes flat. The mane and tail are very thick.
The Czech Warmblood was in existence by the time of the Austria-Hungary Empire (1876-1918). In the 19th century the breed was influenced by Spanish and Italian horses, and later by breeds such as the Furioso, Gidran, Nonius and Przedswit breeds. German Warmblood horses also played a part.
The most famous and successful line is the Bystrý. The founder was Stallion 469, foaled in 1919. The line is characterized by a robustness, shorter and a less solid run, steeper and a shorter fetlock. They are mainly bay horses.
The stud farm in Kladruby plays a major role in the breeding of the Czech Warmblood. In the pedigree book, many other breeds are mentioned, for example Thoroughbred, Selle Francais, Arabian and Anglo-Arabian.
