i like the friesian x appy but as said by pretty much everyone here. it's not a cross i would "participate" in personally. friesians are bred to specific criteria same with (most of the) breeds that are used in these crosses. why do that? just stick with one or the other. just my opinion. *shrug*

But some fresian crosses have turned into actual breeds such as the warlander which is the andy x fresian and the georgian grande with is the saddlebred x fresian so obviously not all crosses are failures. breeds are created my cross breeding.

I like the warlander, and the georgian grande, those were both created with a purpose in mind. The others I will pass on. It greatly upsets me to see everybody breeding their whatever mare to a friesian stallion, usually a stallion that did not get approved at their keuring (or didnt even go) in the first place.

My first horse was a friesian x tb and he was very, very difficult to train. Horrible experience. I ended up trading him for my real first horse who taught me soooo much. He was just a plain ole quarter horse.

I feel that if you breed for a purpose. Like you want to do some jumping but also classical dressage and you have a fresian stallion and your friend has a warmblood or something mare that can jump really good that your friend lets your breed your fresian stallion to. Then you train the horse and use it as a fun horse. I mean I don't care for just crosses. I absouletly love love love love the fresian breed and would rather own a horse that is nice and respectful of me. I don't care what breed.....

At my barn, we have 2 Friesian/Saddlebred crosses. They're absolutely breathtaking in their pinto coloring. The older of the 2 will be 4 years old this year. He's being trained in hunter under saddle. Omg, he is an amazing mover! By far and away the smoothest canter I've ever ridden - that's a lot of different canters! - and his trot is just as pleasant. I can sit his trot without pain or post it with minimal bounce. He's a great mover and SUPER sweet. He loves to give kisses and is wonderful with kids. My 6 year old daughter has been helping his owner (a friend of mine) clean his stall, brush him, and even bathe him for a year now. Now that my daughter is more careful and more experienced around horses, the lady who owns him lets my daughter lead him back to his stall (with supervision, of course).

She has a just-turned-2 year old filly that is being started now and she's just as sweet and loving as her older brother. They came from the barn that started the "Georgian Grande" (sp?) registry back in the '70s (I think). The filly is a more animated mover and we're thinking she'll do saddleseat. She's 2 years younger, but already the same height as the older one. My daughter also helps clean her stall, brush her, give her treats, and anything else that a 6 year old can do with a horse.

I've never had a bad experience with either of them. Maybe they're an exception, but I love their colorings, their builds, and their temperaments.

On a site I go on quite a lot there are a lot of "Friesian" crosses which would put anyone off the crosses, not the nicest put together and that's putting it nicely. However I very much doubt these are actually Friesian crosses because most of the foals are coloured and the cross they're supposed to be means there should be solid foals only.
