I do agree with almost everything said here, from what I read and understand Friesians are cart/carriage horses. They aren't meant for heavy (long riding) and are considered light draft horses also know as, "Belgian Blacks." They are GORGEOUS, but I think people get way to into the looks of them rather than what they're bred to do and what the breeds history holds. I do enjoy watching them in dressage the few times I have seen them. I have yet to see one on the trails, but who knows? They did use to carry knights into battle, lol. Although I do think that price is high, conformation wise there are a few minor things and you are basically "paying for the papers." A pretty expensive trail horse if you ask me. If you could get her for a lower, more reasonable price in this market it'd be more realistic.
I do wish you luck though in whatever you decide to do! Keep us posted. I'd love to see her on the trails if you get her. :)
