A chance to see numerous Friesian horses in one place! Check out the schedule below for date and location.
Every fall the Friesian horse registries conduct their judging of the horses. The word used is "Kuering". Breeders and owners bring an array of horses from unweaned babies to older horses to be judged on movement, confirmation and temperment.
It is here that stallions are recommended to go further to see if they might be one of the few to receive approval from their respective registry for breeding.
Mares receive quality ratings and foals can receive 'Premiums' as a guide to it's possibilities as an adult.
Watching these horses inspires a sense of fantasy and wonder. It is worth a trip to seem them if you are anywhere near a kuering site.
