Frisian mare

Product details

Friesians are powerful, black horses, bred exclusively as black horses. At one time they were often the horses of knights - today they are used as draught or dressage horses.

The ancestors of today's Friesians which originally came from the Netherlands bravely carried knights into battle, worked modestly in farming and were victorious participants in trotting races. Today Frisians are used as coach and dressage horses, in the circus and in numerous other situations. Long hair on the legs, so-called feathers, a thick mane and a handsome tail are characteristics of this active horse. Today only black Friesians are bred (their coat is only ever black). This breed reaches a height of between 1.4 and 1.7 meters at the withers and is admired for its elegant trot.

Fun fact

Friesians are also known as long-haired horses due to the long hair on their legs and their tail.
