A Friesian stallion looks directly at the viewer. His soft mane blows gently in the wind, contrasting his powerful form and pose. Beautiful horse of the northern Netherlands. Friesians are know for their incredibly long manes and tails, and originally bred in the middle ages as war horses because of their size, strength and grace. Today, these stunning animals are more commonly used in harness and under saddle in the field of dressage.
