Proud Meadows is honored
to offer you five Friesian Stallions for your breeding consideration.
All of the stallions except Bogart are approved for breeding
by the FPZV. Bogart has passed the Keuring and only has to
pass the Stallion Performance Test, which will be held early
2006. We are confident that Bogart will pass the test but
we cannot guarantee that result.
The competition accomplishments
of our stallions are from Open Competitions in United States
Dressage Federation (USDF) sanctioned events. Open Competition
means open to all breeds. This causes some confusion when
you compare the accomplishments of our stallions to other
Friesian stallions that list good scores within single breed
For example, when Tinus won
the 2nd Level Championship in 1999, he competed against 1600
other qualified horses. That competition included all of the
fine European Warmbloods competing in the United States.
So be assured that our stallions
are more than just champions of their breed. All of our stallions
have received numerous awards from their breeding registry
but we believe the USDF awards tell the mare owner just how
accomplished these stallions are, compared to any competition
like to think of Proud Meadows as “one stop shopping.”
We categorize Friesians into three basic body types - the
the Baroque and the Sport Horse. We offer all three types
for your consideration. In addition, if maximum mane is desired,
Illiad will more than satisfy your requirements.
remember that horses with good movement are a plus even if
you are just looking for a pet. The movement of our stallions
is exceptional and verified by their results in competition.
also offer a broad range of pricing that should be able to
fit most mare owners' budgets.
