This is a ONCE IN A LIFETIME opportunity to acquire a GRAND PRIX level friesian, that has been brought up slowly and methodically, with the VERY BEST dressage foundation and training a horse could possibly receive!! Douwe STER SPORT and ELITE is a beautiful and well-bred Grand Prix dressage Friesian for sale, with a pedigree full of proven sport bloodlines on both sides. He is an expressive mover, with three good gaits, a wonderful friendly personality, and unbeatable trainability. Douwe van R has had a very successful dressage career, quickly and successfully moving up the levels. He has a lovely temperament and fantastic trainability.
On the ground he is friendly and quiet and very well behaved. Under saddle he has an incredible work ethic andfocus, making him a joy to train. He's smart and willing, with a disposition amateur and professionals would equally appreciate!
Here is Douwe, published in the Phyrso: https://www.phryso.com/douwe-van-r-noteert-65588-in-tweede-prix-st-georges/
From Hennie, his rider for the last couple seasons "Douwe is really a wonderful horse, kind, funny and relaxed---- he likes to be outside and does not act like a stallion at all! He doesn’t mind standing next to mares-----he is really focused on his work when anyone is riding him 😊💪🏻 He is really good with kids 😬😋---check out the pics of Douwe with a very small 4 yr old child in his paddock----the stallion with his boy!"
This is one RARE find!! Its not often that we are able to acquire GRAND PRIX level friesians, and we will deliver Douwe as a stallion OR a gelding--- your choice! Champion driving horse, competing and WINNING in tandem, unicorn, double (pairs) and winning a TON up until he was 8 yrs old, at which point we turned his focus into being the BEST DRESSAGE SPORTHORSE around. This is one EASY GOING stallion--he adjusts himself to his rider---not a spooky/hot/hard to handle guy.
The KFPS recognizes his talent and has given him a license for breeding as a foalbook stallion, B Book 1---which means in countries where there arent many approved stallions, such as Africa, Australia, Mexico, Puerto Rico, etc, you can apply for a breeding license for Douwe, and his foals can be registered (he has rec'd a license for "foalbook stallion" based on performance in the sport). That said, Douwe has not been used for breeding in Europe---this is a CHAMPION sporthorse that excels at anything he puts his mind to!
Douwe was measured by the Dutch Judges as 166 cm (16.1 hands tall), and has had the same owner in the Netherlands since he was 3 yrs old, up until Janna purchased him in July 2020.
If you are looking for a REAL DRESSAGE SCHOOLMASTER< here he is!!! Douwe is a PRO...he does 1, 2, 3 , and 4 tempi changes in his sleep, and can teach YOU the art and finesse of piaffe and passage. This is a horse EVERYONE can ride----see https://www.blacksterlingfriesians.com/ for more info or call 415-272-2112. Serious inquiries only please
