Our Friesian Horses

The Friesian - the black pearl of the horse world.  This very special breed of horse is renowned for its luxurious appearance, friendliness, intelligence, adaptability and an enormous willingness to work.

It is for all these reasons and more that these horses have captured our hearts, imaginations and lives.  Our horses are outstanding examples of the breed and our Friesian family has grown steadily over the years.  We are extremely fortunate to have owned and produced the UK OVERALL BREED CHAMPIONS from 2008, 2011, 2014 & 2016. The first of these was FEMMA, the only mare to achieve the MODEL status in the UK. The 2011 and 2014 winners, ANJA & BERBER also became the first and only mares in the UK to achieve the KROON title, all whilst under our care and Anja took the title back again in 2016 when she had her first foal at foot.

The individual horses are described in greater detail in the links below.
