A Friesian stallion gazes to the right. His soft mane blows in the wind, contrasting his powerful form and providing an abstract balance to the composition. 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.
