Friesian horses are basically from Friesland, Holland which is a province of Netherlands. The very first Friesian horses were of bay colour but with different breeding processes, they can now be seen in black colour as well. This another beautiful breed of horse was discovered in 1973 in North America and then there were only 9,000 of these horses.
These horses are used in different horse exhibitions for the smoothest riding. People who own this unique breed maintain their coat and hence, they have their own fancy dress show, in which, the best hairdo of the horse wins the show.
Did you know that this horse breed has its own association which obviously controlled by humans; it is called the Friesian Horse Association North America (FHANA), each Friesian horse has to be registered at this association and its parent association was The Friesian Stamboek from The Netherlands (FPS).

What is the Pice of Friesian Horse
The starting price of this horse can cost up to $20,000 to $50,000 and the price keeps increasing each year. But if you tend to purchase a senior horse that can cost up to $3000 to $6000 depending upon the age.
Some factors can increase or decrease the price of Friesian. Here are some of them to clarify.
A trained Friesian horse can be priced more as compared to a horse that is untrained. And speaking of training, if the horse is cold-blood it can be very expensive because the training for this breed requires a lot of animal experts who charge a fortune, followed by warm-blooded one can be less than the cold ones and the hot-blooded are cheap. But eventually, the owner has to put in a lot of money to make them cold-blooded.
The trainers of a Friesian can charge with a lot of money, even if you by a hot-blooded horse at less price, the trainer’s cost will become double of the price of the horse.
Even the gender also depends on this trade because a male is sold for less and a female horse is sold expensively. The female Friesian horse is sold at a higher price because they can give babies even though the male plays an equal part but still people have a concept and a tradition
The colours in this horse breed matter a lot. If the Friesian horse is of pure bay colour, it will cost for more than $100,000 and if the horse is of black colour with a marking on its forehead it can cost under $30,000.
The mixture of these colors will be much cheaper because that mixes up the genes but still people like to call them Friesian as they have put a lot of money in buying them, so, it makes them feel better.
But the fact is that if the Frisian has any other spot, just know that it is not a Friesian at all. Maybe the mom or the dad might be Friesian but either one of them will not be a Friesian in such cases, so, don’t let people fool you for the love of your passion.
The size of a Friesian horse matter a lot in its pricing. The FPS says that a mare Friesian must be 1.5 meters high after one year of its birth and a full-grown Friesian should be 16.0 meters to be exact and if this is measured correctly it will mean that the price is going to be very high.
If the height is slightly low, even in inches, it will mean that the Friesian is not pure or there is some genetic disorder in the horse and it can cost less but some people will not call it Friesian.
