The Koninklijke Vereniging “Het Friesch Paarden-Stamboek” (KFPS) has registered Friesian horses since 1879. Today more than 40,000 horses are registered worldwide, and the studbook counts 13,000 official members. Outside the Netherlands these members are organised into their own national associations, which maintain close ties with the KFPS. Most Dutch members are associated with breeding societies, which organise a large number of activities each year, among which are their own breeder¡¯s days and various lecture evenings.
