Hanoverian

Like most German warmbloods, the Hanoverian is named for its region of origin: Lower Saxony in northern Germany was formerly the kingdom of Hanover. In 1714, King Geroge 1 of England-originally the elector of Hannover-sent several English Thoroughbreds to Germany to refine the native stock. Hanoverians are world-class athletes, winning numerous Olympic medals, and are the world's most popular warmblood breed.
