Horse Description

Height: 16.2 hands

Black Sterling Friesians is PROUD to present this top quality gelding, with an extremely friendly, easy, gentle character, and he is suitable for every level of rider!  

What a nice 4 year old gelding, 167cm (16.1 3/4 hands), great mover, natural knee action  with lots of elasticity; Lazarus is light footed. Elegant beautiful conformation, lots of expression, proud with his uphill neck.

What we love MOST about Lazarus is his extremely gentle, friendly personality,  and potential for upper level dressage or saddleseat, with 3 very good gaits!

Lazarus is a gentleman who wants to please his rider, and he responds on small signals, and is light to ride.  He  goes automatically on the bit, smooth to sit, forgiving, no problem when the rider makes a mistake, extremely comfortable and a joy to ride!!

What a special opportunity to own a real GENTLE GIANT dream horse! Lazarus is our newest addition that we are excited about. We love him because he is suitable for any type of rider, both because of his good brain and his amazing temperament, and slow BALANCED canter. If you are a beginner rider or amateur, Lazarus can help you ENJOY riding, and relax.  What incredible gaits he has ----just watch the running free video of him!!!! And WOW his canter is amazing, we RARELY see such a slow, well balanced  canter in a 4 yr old!!!!  He can practically canter in place.  Lazarus is a big teddy bear and standing at just under 16.2 hands, his canter is especially exceptional given his size.

Here is a TRUE gentle giant. Geldings with this quality, ride-ability, and temperament and excellent xrays are very difficult to find these days, and when we DO find them, they just don’t last. 

Already very wise for his age, Lazarus gives his rider a safe feeling outside in nature and traffic---- you can go completely alone on a trail. He is very brave not afraid of anything.


You can brush and cuddle him forever he loves that......... a real sweetheart!
Suitable for every rider! Whatever level you are, Lazarus will adjust himself to even the most novice person on his back. Even goes bareback!

100 % healthy and sound,  Lazarus comes with an extended vet check recent good X-rays.


Check out his natural UPHILL conformation and AWESOME movement in the running free video above!!!

This 1st premie gelding will literally excel in whatever discipline you choose for him! And its no surprise---his pedigree is SUPERB, sired by Gerben and out of a STER mare by Maurus, his motherline is STER-STER-STER-STER+PREF

Don't wait, Lazarus just won't last.

His price includes import and quarantine to NY; LAX or Chicago  are 2k more.
