Horse Description

Height: 16.2 hands

Here is one of our AMAZING finds on our recent horse shopping trip to Europe...

Duke is a  beautiful ster gelding that has an EXCELLENT show record with winning points in L Level, competing and scoring above 70% in First Level dressage in Denmark!

He is a very nice horse to work with, and even the Dutch Judges ranked him as top 20% for conformation and movement, and awarded him with the coveted STER predicate:)

B-day 7/2/2009

168 cm tall----- that translates to 16.2 hands!!! 

Comes with a recent thorough pre purchase completed ion Jan 20, 2015, and he was x-rayed in Denmark, all clean and available for review by your vet!

Duke is a special horse! Not only is he a STER gelding, he has much experience competing in driving: singles and pairs in front of the carriage. He is a very good pleasure, trail riding, dressage or western horse, and he is not scared of traffic--IDEAL for riding in all different settings! The rider does not have to use a whip or spurs, this Friesian is naturally forward moving and he LIKES to work and please you. He is very easy to ride and ideal for a novice or timid rider.

Only the top 15-20% of geldings receive the highly sought after STER predicate, Duke is one of them. He is VERY friendly, has nice conformation, and LONG hair.

Of  the literally hundreds of horses we looked at, this one was the MOST impressive, for the price!!! By Andries 315 and out of a Fetse 349 dam. He has EXTREMELY good suspension and action in front, as well as a powerful motor behind. He has a big beautiful rolling canter and is training 2nd level. He is suitable for novice as well as advanced riders, and has been ridden extensively out on trails.

This boy has a deep black coat, LOTS of hair, beautiful conformation and an incredible personality to match. He is sweet and calm, learns quickly and wants very much to please. Duke is sound and healthy, and comes with a recent full pre-purchase exam and was x-rayed clean in Denmark. Duke of Lien has it all…natural talent, striking looks and a wonderful disposition. And did we mention, this boy is a BALL to ride and drive!
