Horse Description

Are you in search of the perfect family friesian that is ALSO an amazing 2 for 1 value??? Look no further! Meet Nina, a phenomenal Friesian mare ready to steal your heart and become your lifelong companion. Nina is a gem waiting to bring joy to her new family, AND give you a foal in April of 2025.


At 4 years old and 16 1/2 hands, Nina is already proving herself as a versatile and loving partner under saddle. Hailing from Holland, she has a solid dressage foundation and also enjoys exploring trails, and enchanting her previous barn family with her sweet nature.


Nina's charm lies in her heart of gold. She's the type of horse that loves nothing more than showering her humans with affection, offering hugs and is a real people pleaser. With a personality that gravitates towards humans not horses, Nina is more than just a horse – she will be a beloved member of YOUR family.


Nina is uncomplicated to ride, accommodating even less experienced riders---she is a sweet and honest mare. Not a lazy one. Very nice for some dressage or trail riding, all the while being a high quality broodmare--offering an excellent RETURN on your investment! Perfect for beginners or younger riders, she boasts a smooth trot, AND her foal due next spring will be worth more than 1/2 her purchase price!  Nina is in foal to Jeppe 537, the performance topper of 2023!!!! He scored 89.5 points for his saddle exam, the highest score ever of all KFPS breeding stallions. For his driving exam he was rewarded with 93 points and for his harness exam 93.5 points. This included rewarding both his front and hind leg use with an astonishing "9".

Sire of Jeppe 537 is the public favorite of the KFPS, Alwin 469 Sport Preferent AAA! Jeppe 537 comes from a strong-breeding dam line; remarkably, offspring from this fine line almost always score well in the sport and are able to achieve high levels of dressage.

But Nina isn't just into dressage – she's a fearless trailblazer too. Nina tackles every adventure with her calm demeanor and her lack of spookiness make her a reliable partner wherever you roam. Nina is what we call "good thinking". 

Nina's lineage is equally impressive. Her father, Jouwe 485,  passes on his athleticism and balance, traits clearly evident in Nina's muscular build and striking silhouette.


Whether you're a budding dressage enthusiast, a trail riding aficionado, or looking for a TIPPY top quality tall elegant friesian mare to start your breeding program with, Nina fits the bill perfectly. Her unwavering loyalty and affection make her a true treasure for any family, not to mention--she is an outstanding 2 for 1 value!!
