Description

Name is 'Zegen' which means 'Blessing' in Dutch.

Zegen has it all...

Keur Show ‘Res CHAMPION’ earning the coveted STAR and measured 16.1hh at the age of 3! This achievement at age 3, not age 4, alone tells you about his EXCELLENT conformation and NATURAL movement!! He would have been Champion but his sister (with the same bloodlines) came to the same keur and stole it ; )

SPORT horse! This is not a claim of a sport-Friesian but in all actuality, Zegen achieved USDF 3rd level scores in mid 60’s (requiring flying changes) & he Achieved a ‘SPORT’ predicate title.

Rare uphill build, presenting with a classic look.

Trained to DRIVE singles and doubles on trails and streets.

Trail rides alone or in groups.

Zegen is so very FORWARD without spurs or whip and so naturally EAGER to please that he is best suited for an active and somewhat competent partner and not a beginner or timid rider. He is NOT a hot Friesian –he is simply ENTHUSIASTIC!

He travels well, is an easy keeper, even while wintering in Florida heat or the cold Northeast.

Easy going out in group turn-out or individually. No isssues with farrier, trailering, bathing, clipping, saddling. Goes barefoot or shod. Sweetest horse! He is incredibly affectionate taking every opportunity to show his love and the joy he is!

Zegen is not just 'professionally trained' ...His Gold-Medal achieving trainer and Internationally renowned driver training cost well over $120k over his 7 yrs of schooling. No expense was spared in his proper education that is well reflected in his kind and eager demeanor...even with a novice he goes well in a snaffle. A double bridle is not required for control.

Zegen’s dam is MODEL, SPORT, PREFERENT and PERFORMANCE-Mother title is already pending! Besting every single FPS and FHANA Approved-Breeding Stallion in sport she was TWICE declared National Driving Champion of the Netherlands. As a DUAL SPORT CHAMPION, she then also earned her ‘SPORT’ as a 3rd level USDF dressage competitor with the coveted flying changes that eludes 95% of Friesian horses.

As the top 1% of quality, she earned multiple 1st premiums and MODEL in the Netherlands at the Central Mare show!

Verifiable QUALITY! The average mare has to produce more than 10 foals to finally earn their PREFERENT predicate and some of those foals have to repeat the keur experience to earn their star. Zegen's dam, however earned her Preferent title with just her 4 offspring making their star at keur, the first time, at age 3!

Zegen’s Sire’s bloodlines are equally impressive:

I-1 Dressage with Feike Sport x Teunis Sport & Preferent x Tsjalling Sport & Preferent.

Sireline damside: Model + Pref + Prest - Ster + Pref - Model + Pref -etc

LONG-TERM HEALTHY! There are no surprises: Zegen's family history is completely known: Neither he or ANY of his family members are afflicted by EXHAUSTING scratches episodes, dermatitis or cellulitis issues plaguing the breed and so often only becomes apparent on your newly purchased Friesian after they arrive to your home. None have missed a day of work due to lameness or absess. All family members have shown incredibly clean X rays AFTER years of hard work. This family is not bred for a 'look' or fairlytale hair, they were bred for excellent demeanor, sport talent, honest work ethic, health and LONGEVITY!

Zegen is a blessing and seizes every opportunity to show his love! He is such a happy soul! Hopefully this AD gives you a tiny glimpse into this healthy horse with performance bloodlines ....and into the making of who he is.

So that Zegen can find a good, loving home with an active person to call his own, we are completely open to a reasonable offer. The dollars spent on good training are not important nor expected to be regained since we are not brokers, but breeders who have honestly strived to improve the breed at all costs. So call & tell us about you and what you can offer to Zegen.
