We import only Friesians who show promise in their suitability for show, AND for trail/pleasure riding. Consider the Friesian as your next dressage or trail mount. A properly trained Friesian will excite you with its skill and suitability for dressage, show, pleasure riding, and in harness. And as a bonus you will find that it is simply a wonderful family horse.
While we are the largest importers of friesian horses in north america---- we stumbles upon an AMAZING home with spectacular VIEWS to DIE for, and we LOVE sharing them with our wine country guests!!!
