Thier Story

Today’s Friesian horse is the result of centuries of breeding and is native to the low lands of Europe, including Vlaanderen. In addition to the horses originally found in these parts, the horses of the Middle Eastern crusaders (including the Spanish stallions they confiscated during their wars) most probably contributed to the present type. The Friesian horse, with its baroque conformation, evokes memories of famous field marshalls on horseback. Performances in the 4-in-hand shows have traditionally been enjoyed by many people. The horse has striking features – uniformity in body structure, proud positioning of the head and neck, the stepping paces, and of course the beautiful color and the long full tails, manes and fetlocks.

Friesian Horse On Sale

Trotter / Showhorse

The Friesian horse is foremost a trotter and even today trotting events are held in Heereveen (Friesland). The canter does not come naturally to the Friesian although some horses manage it with ease.

The Friesian driving horse is an even-tempered animal which behaves well in front of the carriage – it is often used for marriages and burial functions. As a riding horse, the Friesian also excels, with some stallions already in the high class dressage on the level of Prix de St George to Grand Prix.

Driving / Riding Horse

Dressage Horse

 

The Friesian was originally bred as a multi-purpose horse and has good temperament and knee-action. However, the great advantage of the Friesian, is that it can be used for many sport events including carriage showing, hand showing, driving, riding and dressage. These days in Europe most of the Friesians are used for dressage, riding under the saddle and carriage driving. We are glad to announce that three generations of Starmares are owned by the Top-Notch Friesian Spirit Stud. Two of these Starmares are bred by us.
