Douwe (pronounced Dow-wa) is a very  handsome 3 year, 2nd premier rated lovable youngster  who is sweet and cheerful, and is always looking to please.  At 16 hands, he is the classic Friesian smaller body design with excellent conformation out of the incredible gentle giant sire and progeny approved Hessel 480 and Audry Fan Vels; a high star preferent and model mare lineage.

Currently in full training with Matt Mazza, Douwe is green broke at walk/trot/canter and a great horse to finish your way! Douwe has the sweetest disposition and loves attention. He is a quick learner and has excellent ground manners, trailers well, and is an easy keeper with no vices. 

Douwe is fully suited for driving, dressage and hunter pleasure with his bold, strong gaits and athleticism. 

He currently has his rich winter coat, a mane growing longer each month and a beautiful, silky tail touching the ground. 

This young gelding is looking for his forever home with someone who will go forward with his training. As he is green broke, he is not for an amateur rider without a trainer. He learns very quickly and is very willing, but as a 3 year old, he still needs the guidance of a professional trainer.

As Douwe’s training progresses, his sale price will increase.  Full veterinary report and xrays from the Netherlands and USA available.
