Friesian Crazy had a sixth star in the rating system, we would give Legacy
Friesians a 6 PLUS star rating. We are in New Jersey and purchased
Wybrand from S (the owner) at Legacy Friesians. S has "people sense"
and "horse sense". She has an innate ability to connect with people
and patiently helped us through the process of choosing to buy Wybrand.
We were looking for specific behavioral qualities in a Friesian and Wybrand
seemed to be the right fit based on our long distance communication with
S. S honored her commitment to give us the opportunity to see him
first hand at her location. We flew to Oregon and saw him, rode him
and did the usual ground work with him. S gave us a lot of time the
day we were there to really get to know Wybrand. We knew then and there
that S had assessed our needs and matched us with the right horse.
All the way through the transport to NJ from Oregon and to this day, S has been there to assist with answers to our questions and has kept an established relationship with Wybrand and us. She cares about the horses before, during and after the "buy". It is refreshing to work with someone like S who demonstrates integrity, candor, holds true to a commitment and has a lot of passion for what they do. As new owners of a Friesian in the U.S. we'd say the breed is represented in an outstanding way by Legacy Friesians and S.
didn't feel ever like we were "sold" a bill of goods. We feel that
we made a "buy" on our own accord and in our opinion, there is a difference.
We did our homework and ended up with a good experience. Should more
input be desired, we're clearly open to discussing it and recommend Legacy
Friesians, LLC with high marks.

is an unusual story in that I met the horse prior to meeting the owner/importer
[S]. He was stabled at a dressage event I was attending and had been in
the USA for several months. I had been admiring this breed for several
years and felt it was time for me to purchase my first horse. He was mesmerizing,
gentle,intelligent and sweet - all of the adjectives that swirl around
Frieisans. I followed him around to several events, exhibits, and watched
his keuring last summer. In the interim I had connected with [S] and she
was very professional, informative, and answered many questions over my
four month period of decision making. This was my first experience at purchasing
a horse and it was exceptional. I can easily recommend Legacy Friesians."
met the owner of Legacy Friesian while I was learning to ride again after
turning 50 yrs old. Even though most of my girlfreinds own Arabs I met
[S, the owner]. She has always welcomed me to her home and horse shows
so that I can be around this beautiful creature as much as possible. I
now work two jobs and saving for that glorious day to buy a Friesian from
her. I get to see how Legacy Friesian imports their horses and the awesome
care and love they give to them. Answering thousands of questions even
though I can't buy now. She is a wonderful lady and I thank her for allowing
me just to be in the moment to follow my dream hopefully by the end of
2007 and own one of MY OWN Legacy Friesian. "
would like to write a business related review for Legacy Friesians. I have
not bought a horse from this company, but would like to let people know
that they are not only outstanding to work with purchasing a horse through,
as per reviews, but also on the other end getting the horse to the customer
by ensuring the horse receive the same high standards of care until delivery.

After researching the breed and bloodlines for over a year I started researching
Dealer/Importers. I interviewed many before coming across [S] at Legacy
Friesians. I initially bought a pregnant mare and her colt and then 6 months
later I bought 2 more babies from her. Each transaction of the purchase
and importing was smooth and easy. The horses are excellent quality. The
mare is a first premie star and the babies are all full papered second
premie's. She and her Netherland connection, [P] and [J], know how to listen
to your needs and help you select exactly what you desire. I am completely
satisfied with all of my Friesians."
bought an "import" horse from Legacy Friesians sight unseen, and I would
not hesitate to do it again.
owner] is a very nice and friendly lady, very helpful and quick at responding.
Through [S, the owner] I was able to buy my dream horse, a gorgeous Friesian
filly from Holland. [S] took care of everything, all I had to do was pick
her out and arrange to get her from quarentine here in the states to my
house! No hassle, just ease! :) I highly recomend Legacy Friesians for
helping you import a Friesian, or buying one that they have already imported!"
highly recommend Legacy Friesians. I bought a filly from them six months
ago and have never regretted it. In fact, I love my Beart filly so much
I recommended Legacy Friesians to my mother who bought a Heinse mare from
them as well. Both experiences were honest, fair and wonderful. Do not
hesitate to purchase from [the owner] at Legacy Friesians! She has wonderful
horses, ethics, honesty and a true love of the breed."
was an AWESOME experience and totally restored my faith in horse brokers.
I purchased my BEAUTIFUL Fresian boy, Haeke, from this business a year
ago. He was and is everything he was represented to be, and is admired
by evryone who sees him. At the time of purchase, he was just 3 yrs. old,
and was already strong under saddle,in all three gaites. He was healthy
and kind and exactly like his pictures and videos. I flew from L.A. to
Portland, Oregon to see him for the first time, at his Keuring, where he
was rated "Star", "Second Premie".His price immediately went up, should
I not purchase him, but Legacy Fresian's honored the price qouted to me
prior to the Keuring, being the reputable business that they are. He passed
the Vet with flying colors, and hasn't taken a lame step, or been sick
a day since I bought him. All my phone calls were immediately returned,
and questions answered. Legacy Fresians went out of thier way, to make
his transport convenient, and safe!! They are not only honest, reputable
people, but they truly care about thier horses. It was such an exciting
experience, and Legacy Fresians made it fun, I never felt for one minute,
that I couldn't trust them. Thank you Legacy Fresians!!"
was fortunate enough to find Legacy Friesians in Newberg, OR after doing
a lot of homework on the breed and wading through importers. I was impressed
that the owner had hand-selected each of the horses she had for sale. As
advertised, they were all beautiful, healthy and trained to the level specified.
I was impressed with the owner's implicit honesty and sincere desire to
answer all my questions and allay my many concerns regarding such an important
investment. I even panicked and changed my mind once--all it took was a
phonecall to the owner and she graciously returned my 'non-refundable'
deposit without hesitation. It was clear that she felt that customer satisfaction
and finding the right home for her horses was of paramount importance;
making the sale was only secondary. I was so impressed with the owner's
honesty and integrity that we stayed in touch; fortunately, I came to my
senses and bought the same horse a month later. He is everything she had
promised and more!!! I have since purchased a filly and a pregnant mare
from Legacy Friesians and would never consider buying from anyone else
after such a positive initial experience. Her farm is beautiful and the
horses are happy and well cared for there. I urge anyone from the curious
looker to the serious buyer to contact Legacy Friesians--you'll be treated
with respect, integrity and absolute honesty. I recommend Legacy Friesians
unconditionally and with all my heart; I am so grateful for them for introducing
me to friesians and finding my Dream horses for me!!"
looked for about a year for the right horse, meeting with and / or having
a bit of contact with over eight friesian importers and / or breeders.
I even traveled a few thousand miles to look at one horse. I would say
I had a very positive experience with several sellers / breeders. However,
I felt I had the most straightforward, caring and reputable experience
with Legacy Friesians.
Just keep in mind, they call it "horse trading" for a reason...and it is possible to get hurt in the process, as anyone will tell you (...whether it's intentional or not). The bottom line: DO YOUR HOMEWORK and figure out who you feel most comfortable with!"
called and spoke to [the owner] and she was very friendly and very helpful
in educating me about the Friesian breed. There was no pressure whatsoever
to buy a horse and it was just a very pleasant experience."
