Not sure how I feel about Friesians of Majesty. The promote the FPS in their logo yet breed FPZV stallions... And I do not care for the conformation or type of either of their stallions.

How does the friesian trot (and canter) compare to Morgans? I hear many people complain about the friesian trot being too bouncy and powerful. But I rode at a morgan breeding barn for 2 years and rode many morgans trained for saddleseat and driving which had HUGE and fast trots and I really loved it. Is it much different and difficult to get used to? I've also ridden horses with that bouncy but unbalanced trot. So I guess i'm wondering in "which way" they are bouncy.

Can't comment on Fiesian's trot, but keep in mind that the Morgan is a gaited breed. Noted for it's smooth gaited ride which, along with being robust and durable, is what made the Morgan and Saddlebred the darlings of the US Cav well over 100 years ago.
Friesian's are not a gaited breed noted for the smooth extra gaits of the gaited breeds.
