TACK


The Friesian horse is generally wider in the back than a warmblood, or many other breeds, and the Friesian horse has bigger ribs and they stand more round. After numerous requests to sell our tack WITH our horses, we decided to design, develop, and import saddles and bridles designed specifically for our horses. That way we COULD sell each horse’s tack WITH the horse! We noticed over the years, some of our Friesians who we used normal saddles on,  with a smaller tree size, were sometimes getting back and shoulder problems.
The Black Sterling saddle is extremely comfortable for our horses, as well as their riders. This saddle is recommended by physiotherapists. The size of the saddle is for the most common size of the Friesian horse. The size is exactly the same in inches as the original Fryso saddle, but this saddle is less expensive and more durable!

most horses in most climates. We recommend our blankets in sizes 74, 76, 78, to fit most Friesian horses. We have sizes 72-78 currently in stock.
