A Friesian Warmblood is a horse that is at least 25% Friesian. The balance of the bloodlines can be any breed.
Registered Friesian Warmbloods regularly include horses mixed with Thoroughbred, Andalusian, Arabian, Gypsey Cob, Stockhorse, Morgan, Quarterhorse, Warmblood, Clydesdale and in almost any combination.
By their very nature a Friesian Warmblood is a cross breed horse that is bred for:
- Even temperament
Friesian Warmbloods are the quintessential all-rounder/sport horse. The Friesian Warmblood is athletic, correctly formed, has good solid confirmation and an even temperament.
The Friesian blood creates beauty, lovely movement, confirmation and a “look at me” presence when crossed with other breeds.
A Friesian Warmblood can be any colour, including pintos.
The average height is between 15hh and 17hh however due to variation in cross breeding, any height is capable being registered.
Registered Friesian Warmbloods are currently competing successfully in eventing, dressage, show jumping, the showring, harness as well as countless pleasure horses.
