Vivid images of the magnificent Friesian horses dynamically reflect the sheer beauty of these gentle animals.

Purebred Friesian horses are recognized by their raven-black coat color, powerful overall conformation, good bone structure, arched neck and well-chiseled, short-eared head. A Friesian horse has a long thick mane and a silky tail. These beautiful animals are noted for their brisk, high-stepping trot. Friesian horses are valued for their intelligence, docility and willingness to cooperate with people. Elegant and good tempered, Friesian horses are highly valued among film directors, hence their popularity in movies and television. For example, they were starred in such films as “The Mask of Zorro” and “Interview with a Vampire”.
