Our Friesian Horses
The Friesian - the black pearl of the horse world. This very special breed of horse is renowned for its luxurious appearance, friendliness, intelligence, adaptability and an enormous willingness to work.
It is for all these reasons and more that these horses have captured our hearts, imaginations and lives. Our horses are outstanding examples of the breed and our Friesian family has grown steadily over the years. We are extremely fortunate to own the UK OVERALL BREED CHAMPIONS from 2008, 2011 & 2014. The first of these was FEMMA, the only mare to achieve the MODEL status in the UK. The 2011 and 2014 winners, ANJA & BERBER also became the first and only mares in the UK to achieve the KROON title, all whilst under our care.
Our priority is to take time bringing out the best in each of our horses. We know every horse inside out and sometimes we will consider selling if the circumstances are right. Please note we are not interested in quick turnovers or the usual methods of 'dealing'so please don't expect a response if you simply enquire what horses we have for sale! We would expect to know a bit more about you before we could tell you if we had a horse to suit you.
The individual horses are described in greater detail in the links below. For those interested in our driving horses, please visit the pages for Hidde, Droomwals and Vela. Those we use for our Friesian Riding experiences are Hidde, Renske, Droomwals, Dibbrich, Doutzen and Ineka.
