Friesian Horse History

The Friesian horse is unique, truly a breed to be proud of. It developed from a very old breed which was inherent to all of western Europe. It's the only horse native to Holland. Historically speaking, the Friesian horse has been influenced by eastern bloodlines and has often been threatened with extinction.
The armored knights found the Friesian Horse very desirable, having the strength, courage and heart to carry great weight and still maneuver precisely, in the face of the enemy. The Hungarian King Louis II used a Friesian Stallion on the battlefield on June 15, 1526. The Friesian was used as a war horse by Friesian Soldiers fighting with the Roman Armies, and later was used by knights and traveled all the way to the Middle East with the Crusaders.
The suppleness and agility of the Friesian Horse became sought after in the riding schools of Paris and Spain in the 15th and 16th centuries. In the middle ages, it was mainly a knight's horse, but in the 18th and 19th century the Friesian was especially famous as a trotting horse on short distances. The Friesian was so adapted as a fast trotting coach horse that it was, in fact, Friesians who invented trotting races over short distances during the 18th century.
At one time, the amount of registered Friesian Horses became even less than one thousand and the fate of the breed was uncertain. In fact, the number of Friesian Stallions reputedly was reduced to ONLY three, prior to World War I. Thanks to the single-mindedness and dauntless dedication of true Friesian horse lovers and Breeders in Friesland, a northern province of Holland, one can still appreciate the many facets of the Friesian horse today
