Mare gradings and performance tests

The dam lines are the corner stones of any horse breed. Strong, true-breeding mare lineages with either dressage- or jumping abilities above average and tested in the sport or at the mare performance tests have founded the increasing success of Danish Warmblood in arenas all over the world.

Her you will find the rules and regulations for the DWB mare gradings and the DWB saddle grading for mares:

Linear Scoring was introduced in the Danish Warmblood breed in 2014 and is consider to be an objective and very informative method of evaluating confirmation and gaits.

The sheets for foals/weanlings have been rationalized into a shorter linear scoring sheet.

Danish Warmblood gives you a variety of possibilities as to how your mare should be tested and graded.

Some foreigners use Danish riders to show them in Denmark, others have DWB gradings in their country, like the US inspection happening every other year.

Next US inspection will be in October 2024 in a number of different states.

You must be a member of Danish Warmblood to be able to enter a horse/mare for the DWB judges.

If you are interested in hosting an inspection, please contact our treasure, Jane Hayes.
