Friesian Sporthorse Adventures!

AKA Liz's dream come true.  Full-blood Friesians, and the sporthorse version, are just so MAJESTIC and BEAUTIFUL.  Squee!

I mean, just LOOK at him!!  Eli is a 7 year old Friesian x Percheron gelding.  He's A's baby.  He's been under saddle for a year now.  His quick, feisty personality complements A's perfectly.  They're a very good match.

I had a blast watching A work him.  The areas she has to work him back home in WV aren't the MOST ideal, but they do the job.  (We labored our butts off to wrestle a bunch of panels into a round pen so she has another option in the upcoming week.)

Time to stretch!

I've watched her journey with Eli via Facebook for the past year or so.  I've always dreamed of meeting him in person.  He's so dreamy.

Loooove him! 

Thanks, A, for helping one of my horse dreams come true!  Now, for autumn weather and FOX HUNTING!


  1. I've never ridden or photographed one. Both are on my to-do list. I am very jealous.

  2. Oh WOW!!! He is beautiful. That second photo is so amazing!
    I second Dom's comment, I'm so jealous!!
