Learning Center The Friesian Horse with Bruce Griffin

The Friesian breed originated in Friesland, a province in the Netherlands, where they served as medieval war horses and work horses. Famous for its luxurious mane, tail, and forelock, the Friesian has an expressive face, high-set neck, and powerful legs and hindquarters. Noted for their gentle natures, Friesians are willing, active, and energetic horses that are well suited for the variety of disciplines, from Western pleasure to driving to dressage to saddle seat.
