Black Pearl Freisians had a VERY successful show and exhibition season. Jelle v.d. Heikant, Ster gelding, and Tiffany participated in the great Midwest Horse Fair to kick off our season promoting the Freisian breed and demonstrating the beauty and versatility of the Friesian horse. Next Jelle proudly performed at the Rolex 3 day event in Lexington Kentucky with the FHANA group. Our goal at every exhibition we participate in is to educate people on the Friesian breed and it’s versatility and kind temperment.
Along with Jelle, we competed in IFSHA shows with Rixt fan Teaksyl (Crown Mare) and Jildou fan e Boppelannen (Model/Sport Mare), in 3 different regions, Wisconsin, Ohio and New York! We won multiple Regional Championships. Jelle was honored with 2 Horse of the Year Awards as well. Jelle and Jildou competed at 3rd level dressage and both took multiple 1st place and regional championships awards. Alexis also competed with Jelle in the Leadline class.
And to top the year off we took Jildou and Rixt to the IFSHA World Show and the FHANA Central Mare show! Jildou and Rixt won multiple World Champion titles. Also they won 2nd and 4th place respectably in the Central Mare Show.
