The black Friesian is a coldblood horse of ancient origin. In its own land it arouses much the same admiration, and even adulation, as that given to the massive Shire horse in Britain. Although it is ridden and displays great agility under saddle, the modern Friesian excels as an impressive, free-moving harness horse. It’s temperament and appearance made it popular with circus trainers, and its presence and color ensure a market for it in the funeral business.
The Friesian, which descends from the “primitive” Forest Horse of Euopre, is bred principally in Friesland on the northern Netherlands coast (info from Eyewitness Handbooks – Horses).
