Mission Statement
We have been dedicated to the purebred Dutch KFPS / FHANA Friesian horse since 1981 with promotion, breed education, training, showing, sharing our KFPS Friesians with others, and making our Friesian dream come full circle by helping others with our Friesian services. We live for the fun stuff in training, owning & sharing, selling, promoting & showing our Friesians.
Over the years we have built up a valuable network, an extensive resume, we are multi-lingual, well traveled, informed about the Friesian worldwide, and have a large library of both practical and multimedia knowledge. Our personal touch, experience, commitment to privacy and confidentiality, and hands-on sharing sets us apart and attracts those we can help.
Our approach is simple, focused on peaceful country enjoyment, centered around living the dream of 'My Little Pony' on our real-live Friesian farm, and the Bible. 
If we can share with you our life-long passion for this magnificent breed--owners, non-owners, future owners, regardless of registry, (non)memberships, experience or discipline--connect with us through the Contact Page ( or
