(I'm sure this has talked about before, but I didn't see anything recent. So I'll start a new thread!)
I liked Friesians before. Who doesn't like a romantic picture of a fairy-tale like black horse with mounds of wavy hair?
But now that I've met a few and rode one, I think I'm in love. Smitten.
My English lesson horse, a 15.3 Friesian mare who've I've had only 6 lessons on, is to blame. Total sweet heart. I have a lot to work on in my lessons on her but she is still a pleasure to ride.
My instructor also has a gorgeous Friesian stallion and I've met another one in the area. Both drop dead gorgeous.
But that mare is any testament to how the breed is in general or how they influence crosses, my pocket book might be in huge trouble sometime in the future when I look for my own horse if I fall anymore in love. And for the sake of money I hope it's just a phase.
I'll have to get a photo of her and post it here. But for now, does anyone have or know a Friesian, Friesian-cross, or Friesian sport horse? Tell me about them! What do you think about the breed? Post photos!
