Promote & Preserve
The Friesian Horse
The FHS has been serving North American Breeders for over 20 years.
We are a 501(c)(5) non-profit organization whose mission is to both promote and preserve the beautiful Friesian horse through education and strict registration standards, as originated in the Netherlands for this Dutch breed.
Established in 1992 as a European North American affiliate, since 2007 the FHS now serves as an Independent North American Friesian Registry having obtained the Universal Equine Life Number (UELN) for the Friesian horse in the United States and Canada providing International registration for all Friesians with traceable lineage, with its primary goal being the breeding of pure offspring of this unique, centuries-old breed of horse.
The Friesian horse, though well known for its beauty, shining black coat, luxuriant mane, tail and feathering, and powerful, high-stepping gait, is also beloved for its easy-going temperament and companionable nature. Whether competing in upper level dressage tests, performing on the carriage driving circuit or just going for a trail ride, the Friesian quickly becomes a member of the family.
