Nicole & Eeltsje - Our WEF Champions!

WOW!  WHAT AN HONOR!  We are so very proud and excited to have been chosen as one of 4 USA FPS Friesian Stallions and 4 Dutch FPS Friesian Stallions (from Holland) that will make up the Friesian Stallion team and will represent our magnificent Friesian breed in the Opening Ceremony of the 2010 World Equestrian Games!  The Friesian Stallion Team will be performing a routine known as the “Friesian Train,” which will highlight the gentle temperament of the breed as well as all of the classical dressage movements including upper level movements such as the piaffe and passage.

The WEG opening Ceremony will be held on September 25, 2010 at the newly constructed and renovated Kentucky Horse Park.  The WEG has always been held outside of the U.S., so we are equally excited to participate in the first ever USA held WEG!  The Opening Ceremony, as well as most of the events, will be telecast world-wide.  Please keep an eye out for when it will air in your location…we don’t know if it will be shown live or not at this point.

Check back to the WEF News page for updates!  We will let you know as we get more details!  And please check out the videos of Eeltsje and Nicole competing and attending the 2008 USDF Convention Symposium featurting Kyra Kyrklund.

Hugs to all!
