RARE LONG Haired friesian mare for sale

Tall Gorgeous Mare, OVER 16.1 hands TALL! 

Are you looking for a mare with the outstanding bloodlines, sired by the amazing BENTE approved stallion and out of a mare by the incomparable FABE???? A horse that has a lifetime ahead of her to compete in dressage, and is already competing in dressage, and producing top of the line foals? Meet Tara! This REASONABLY PRICED long hared fairytale mare is certain to NOT last!

You will LOVE this mare and her MANE which stretches towards her KNEES!! Tara is a VERY TALL mare, measuring OVER 16.1 hands tall, and boy can she move! She has long legs and excellent conformation.

Tara also has an EXTREMELY LOW 0.98% inbreeding coefficient, meaning you can breed her to just about anyone.

Not only is Tara a beautiful, sweet PROVEN dressage show horse with exceptional bloodlines- she is also an excellent breeding prospect with her outstanding movement and pedigree. This girl uses her body and can flat out MOVE! She has 3 fabulous smooth gaits. She already has a lovely, uphill, collected canter. Tara is 8 years old and is a good thinking Friesian horse for sale, ALWAYS ridden and shown by an amateur rider.  So great for her age! She is sensible, quiet, and always enjoys her work. We love Tara because she always wants to please and gives 150% effort every day- and she is the sweetest, most loving horse in the barn, not to mention her FAIRYTALE LOOKS with her mane reaching towards her knees!!!! She is such a kind horse and doesn’t have a bad bone in her body!!!

AND she is a PROVEN PRODUCER, having had 2 foals previously!  Last picture above is her foal by Jasper, who is now a 3 yr old! Tara is a GREAT mother, she has had -- a 2020 filly by Jasper 366 AND a 2021 colt by Maurits 437.  Look at the last photos  above for pics of her offspring!


Tara is very nice to ride because she is the perfect amount of forward. Never too lazy and not too forward, ALWAYS ridden and shown by an amateur rider. She learns things very quickly and has lots of talent. Very eager to learn. She moves off the leg very easily and is very easy in the contact. She is very comfortable to ride, she is not lofty at all. Great if you have lower back problems. You will have a BLAST on her! She stands like a soldier getting on and is always forgiving if you give her the wrong signal.

Tara would make an excellent addition to any show horse or breeding program. This fantastic deal on such a high quality FAIRYTALE mare with so much saddle time,  is nearly impossible to find, AND a proven GOOD MOTHER. Tara comes with a recent pre-purchase exam, and would also make a wonderful all around trail/pleasure family horse for the amateur rider.


Tara is our SPRING SPECIAL and a GREAT BUY!!!!  She is ONLY $28,900 delivered to NY INCLUDING 3 day USDA quarantine and it is 2k more for airfare to Chicago or LAX.
