The Chez Warmblood is a breed of horse from the Austria-Hungry Empire (1876-1918). During the 1800s, Spanish and Italian horses were introduced to the Chez Warmblood. Later, breeds such as Furioso, Gidran, Nonius, Przedswit and German Warmblood were also used.
The Kladruby stud farm is a major contributor to the Chez Warmblood breed, which also mentions Thoroughbred, Selle Francais, Arabian and Anglo-Arabian breeds in their pedigree book.
