one look is usually all it takes, for nowhere is there a horse that elicits
such an emotional response from first-time onlookers as the Friesian. For centuries
this unique animal was protected in its homeland of Holland, specifically
the northern province of Friesland, kept pure and free of the blood of other
breeds. Such stringent, and ancient, protections have led to a horse that
remains unusually similar in conformation and temperament to its early ancestors
of 1,000, even 2,000, years ago.
ancient breed from the tiny picturesque province in the Netherlands in turning
heads across America. Bold, elegant, and flashy, the Friesian is capturing the
imagination of everyone who sees one. The Friesian was reintroduced to the United
States in the 1970s by driving enthusiasts. It rapidly attracted attention by

ridden by kings. Soon the horse was seen pulling royal carriages, performing
in circuses, and demonstrating at the famed riding academies.

The Sjees is an ornate carriage which dates back to the 1800.
Today it makes an impressive sight with Friesians harnessed in front
for driving shows and competitions.
The word sjees comes from the French word “chaise” roughly
translated chair on wheels. In competitions usually a couple dressed in
traditional garb of the 1800's will compete in games associated with the
era, or compete on their driving abilities.
