Magnificent Friesian horses (video)

Friesian Horse

Friesian horses were originally bred in the Netherlands from the light draft horse. Very popular during the Middle Ages when armor was heavy, the Friesian almost became extinct. Now as riders have generally become heavier, this handsome breed is back in demand. Enjoy! ~ HfH

Too magnificent not to send on, you’ll love the music as well, beautifully played. These horses were originally bred as “war horses” in the days of knights and armor. As armor got heavier, bigger horses were needed and the Friesian almost became extinct. They are back and are one of the most beautiful horses in stature as well as gait.What gorgeous animals!! Just watching them becomes an emotional experience. Can you imagine what it would be like to ride one? Their manes and tails are the longest that I have seen and I noticed that when performing on grass, their hoofs do not kick up a divot, as they land flat footed. Creatures such as these are what makes this world so special. These horses are native to the Netherlands. Have your audio on.

    What a pleasure to watch! I have a friend who rides his bike with his Arabian on a lead, much longer than here. It’s a lot of fun to travel with your horse that way.

    I have been owned by friesian horses since 1995. They are kind, honest, gentle and intelligent beings. Loved this video and Cally always captures the noblility and spirit of the friesians. But My love for the friesian breed does not diminish my love for ALL horses.
