well i know i had chosen a stally for her but after today im putting that decision on hold for a bit. im going to have a look at a lovely black fresian tomorrow. i happened upon this guy by chance today who owns him and im gunna have a look and see what he is like. i saw him from a distance and he looked b-e-a-utiful but i didnt have time for a close look so we are going to look tomorrow.

so what are peoples opinions on a tb x fresian? ill get some pics tomorrow

note - to all the people who have been up in arms of late about cross breeding etc dont waste your breath giving me a lecture. im not a backyard breeder but am wanting to raise a forever baby for myself. i also have NO prejudices about cross breeding as long as both parents compliment each other etc

so, with that out of the way, i want peoples unprejudiced opinions on this cross for dressage and jumping

Friesians are a funny breed. They look marvelous with all that flowing hair, and their high stepping action. But really when it comes down to it, I don't like them as a performance/show horse especially for dressage or jumping (at the higher levels anyhow) They are fine for low level dressage, but the Friesian struggles with upper level movements due to their hind end conformation. This horse was bred to trot and trot is lovely, but cannot canter correctly limiting them when it comes to dressage. They have trouble doing flying changes and pirouettes and I personally wouldn't exactly think of a Friesian as a jumper.
I admire them, as they are beautiful story book looking creatures, but just aren't suited for what I do competition wise. If you are just looking to breed something for lower level, I'm sure you'd end up with a lovely horse however.

Purebred Friesians are absolutely stunning, however you might want to think twice before breeding to a TB mare... sometimes they turn out funny. The only reason I bring this up is because I had a TB mare and really really wanted to breed to a Freisian, but my trainer talked me out of it because 1) my mare was small and had not foaled out before, so she was worried about a big-boned foal causing birthing problems, and 2) they can turn out funny-looking.
I just wanted to let you know! Chances are the foal will turn out more TB-like then Friesian-like...
Having said that, you might want to ask the stallion owner if he has done a TB cross before, and ask to see the foal, or pictures of the foal (in early days and when it's grown up a bit). Could be a nice foal, though.. not sure!
There's a breeder near where I live that owns a Friesian stallion, and regularily breeds him to WB and TB mares and, although I absolutely LOVE Freisians, I don't like the foals for some reason...
Anyways, I'm sure you'll find out which stallion is the best fit for the mare, and be sure to keep us updated!

I am glad you are sticking to your first choice. You looked a long time and the cross has proven to be outstanding in performance of all kinds. How easily we get side tracked and how easy it is to be enticed into something other than our original gut feeling. Your choice will prove to produce the perfect baby for you! You will immediately fall in love, because there is something so special and unique about each and every part of every foal.
