Friesian horses developed from a very old breed of western Europe and is the only breed native to Holland. Because of the influence of eastern bloodlines, these horses almost became extinct. Today however, this wonderful breed is enjoying a revival and is fast becoming very popular in the United States as is made clear by the increasing numbers of Friesian horse shows and classes for Friesians in shows across the country.

Black coats, flying manes and tails, and high action insure these horses are a lovely sight in the show ring. Friesians, by their very nature, are talented show horses due to their intelligence, and readiness to learn and perform. WhileFriesian horse shows and class offerings are building in numbers throughout the county, the gentleness of this breed heightens their fame as recreational mounts also.

Friesians are wonderful to ride and are also very talented in dressage. There are always many driving classes since the ability, the history and the delight in seeing them teamed, or singly, pulling a wide assortment of carriages, or in quadrille, is a very well appreciated event. In quadrille, complex patterns are driven, showing the great trust one can place in the obedience and willingness of the Friesian.

The Friesian horse shows of today allow the rider/driver to enjoy the partnership of this incredible horse while experiencing a rare sense of pride and participation in history.
