Fryso is now at his new home, congratulations to Laurie, of Tower Lane Farm in Auburn, WA!
is a reference letter that Laurie wrote:
Fryso is an outstanding horse and partner. While he was a champion in his driving career, he really knew nothing about riding. He has such a great mind and tries very hard to please. While I have owned him now for only two months we are making great strides together. I took him to a clinic with Rafael Hilliegers, a Olympics rider on the Dutch team, and he thought Fryso was outstanding and very smart. We taught him the shoulder in, at the walk of course.
Thank you so very much for helping me find him. It was a pleasure doing business with you. I have purchased a number of horses, mostly imported, but this has been my first experience where I felt that the horse broker that I was working with (you) truly has a great deal of integrity. I greatly appreciate you professionalism and would highly recommend your services and support to anyone.
Enclosed is a current picture from this weekends clinic.

Fryso is a 4 year old "full papered" gelding with a willing attitude and gentle nature.
Here is Fryso's pedigree:
And here is Fryso's dam's pedigree, so you can see he is "full papered." Full papered is a term that simply means that his dam, his grand-dam, and his great grand-dam are all STER (top 10% of all mares) or MODEL (top 2% of all mares). When they are STER, an S follows their name. When They are Model, an M follows their name. He has 2 M+Ps in his mother line. The P means Preferent, which means that the mare has many STER daughters, and it is an indication that she passes on her quality to her offspring :
LAX this is roughly $5800, and $5000 to NYC)
