I love watching them and looking at them but I will probably never own one. They wouldn't be practical for the type of riding that I do. The ones posted on this thread are absolutely breathtaking. The closest I can come is my Perch that is part of our driving team. He was mistaken for a Fresian by a couple of people on here.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Thanks for your kind words. How fun that you have a Percheron, is he black? The smaller Percherons can easily be mistaken for a Friesian. How many horses do you have? Your horse on your avatar picture is beautiful.

Thank you, the gray is my Mustang that is like a mini-percheron LOL. This is my boy John from last year. He is still young and wasn't as bulky then as he is now.

Thank you . I started him under saddle about a year and a half ago but he quickly outgrew the biggest saddle I had. Now he is part of a driven team along with my Belgian mare.

I have a sport horse. I am having a hard time taking a few pounds off her. If she doesn't get a fair amount of hay she will break out to get food. :)

News from Max, he's still at the old stable, we were trying to call the guy from the new stable all weekend but nobody responded. I'm not blaming him, something probably happened and he had to go away or something, I don't know, today we go up there personally to avoid unanswered phone calls and we'll see. Yesterday me and my friend went for a 4 hour trip with Max and Tatami (my friend's appaloosa, young but a very good horse), Max was absolutely great, he was still nervous at the beginning of the trip but eventually found out nothing's going to eat him and we had lots of fun. I'm sorry for such a short update, I have to run, I just woke up, I have to eat and then we go straight to the stable so hopefully in the evening I'll be FINALLY able to bring some possitive news

P.S. Smrobs, that's a BIG horse! I have a serious thing for big horses, he's amazing...

And churumbeque, your horse is such a beauty. I can't wait for Max to have such an amazingly round bum as well (an no ribs you can count from far distance!)

I've heard the term Friesian Sport horses before, but how exactly are they classified? If I've done my research correctly how they are classified has a lot to do with what breed the Friesian is crossed with. Is that correct?

And I too wish I had a Friesian, but I'm content with my half Friesian. For now anyway.

I am assuming you are inquiring with mine as I didn't see any other pics posted.
She is 3 and is right at 15H and she is crossed with a peruvian. This was about her 10th time driving.
