If you are new to the world of the Friesian horse, we invite you to take this opportunity to explore the history, characteristics and uses of this marvelous breed. We have included a brief history of the Friesian Horse and the Friesian Studbook by Bouma and a fascinating time-line of the breed's development.
We hope you will be interested in joining us as owners of a Friesian horse. If so, there are a few things to be aware of before making your selection. Please review our overview of the rules of the FHANA registry and then check out our list of Friesian Horse Breeders and Sellers. Take the opportunity to call on one of these folks to see Friesians up close and, perhaps, make one your own.
In several areas of North America there are local FHANA chapters. Please take the opportunity of contacting them. If you are not a resident of North America, there may be an FPS affiliate in your own country. Check our list of world-wide affiliates.
If you already own a Friesian mare and are interested in breeding her, the Friesian Stallion Directory will list the available stallions in North America and also stallions who are available as shipped semen.
