Couldn't agree more with everyone here -- it's NOT a good idea. Friesians are not built to jump, or do most activities you see others do. Now, you will see them out there, but not at olympic jumping levels or high dressage tests. They can and will but are NOT built for it. To cross a horse like that with a QH it's asking for trouble. The crosses I've seen like that have been some of the ugliest horses I've seen and I find it hard to call any horse ugly...
GOOD friesian breeders won't do it, it's not good for the registry especially if they're an approved FHANA stallion. They can loose that instantly like others have said, reputable breeders won't do it. So then on that note what level stallion are you going to breed her to? If he's not registered with FHANA and not part of the registry who's to say what will come out it.
I wouldn't, just no. I would buy one of hers or find a breeder of the cross that has the ugly weeded out. Even if they do have most of the "ugly" gone you can't always guarantee a good looking foal. I have seen great babies come out of the cross but there have been VERY few.
Are you doing it for looks? Because you like the cross? Not being snark at all here!
