The Koninklijke Vereniging “Het Friesch Paarden-Stamboek” (KFPS) is the oldest studbook in the Netherlands and promotes the interests of the Friesian horse in the broadest sense of the word. Horses’ lush mane and feathering, their shiny coat and the large black eyes add to their one-of-a-kind appearance. Reliable, eager to learn and gentle. The Friesians are very loyal to their owners and will follow them through scary situations based on their trust alone. And they can be used for many different disciplines thanks to their high intelligence and their sensitive nature: Whether it’s dressage, circus riding or advanced dressage – there is no other horse breed that presents itself in such a majestic way in many different disciplines. Friesian horses are also referred to as “black pearls” .
