"It's hard not to be awed when you see a Friesian horse galloping in an open Field, flowing mane, tail, and fetlock ruffling in the wind, and head held high.
For centuries, the Friesian has been a horse of desire - from a well-disciplined workhorse to a fearless medieval warhorse. Hailing from Friesland, a province in the Netherlands, the Friesian can trace its history back to the ancient world.

Thankfully, in the early 20th century passionate breeders created a new studbook to preserve and promote the line, gradually returning the Friesian to its seat of honor.
