The South African Warmblood horse is a specialized sport horse for the disciplines of Show jumping, Dressage and Eventing. The South African Warmblood Horse Society (SAWHS) is the governing body for Warmblood horses in the Republic of South Africa and falls under the SA Department of Agricultural and the Registrar of Animal Improvement. The breeding goal of the SAWHS is to breed horses of internationally competitive standards that will enable the South African riders and breeders to take their rightful place in the equestrian arenas around the world. The Society's selection efforts are directed at improving sports performance and conformational correctness. The recording and inspections done by the Society offer protection and guidance to both breeder and buyer. To contact the SAWHS, e-mail sawhs@mweb.co.za or phone 083 260 6495.
