The Friesian horse is very charismatic. Their gentle and willing nature provides a strong base for versatile training. The intelligence of the Friesian leads to a rewarding partnership between horse and owner. Uses of the Friesian horse are limitless-dressage, saddle seat, trail, and pleasure riding, jumping, pleasure driving, combined driving, and more! The handsome appearance and naturally animated motion provide a noble “presence” in any show ring, parade, trail, or just in your own paddock.
BLM Wild Horse and Burro Program
In 1971, the United States Congress recognized wild horses and burros as living symbols of the historic and pioneer spirit of the West, which continue to contribute to the diversity of life forms within the Nation and enrich the lives of the American people.Wild horses or burros are free-roaming equines of the North American west that the BLM manages and protects to ensure they will live in perpetuity on the western public lands.
These horses and burros have been living in the west for hundreds of years and are most recently influenced by the settlement of the West. You will see hints of various breeds in the wild horses, but they are bred by Mother Nature to survive in a tough desert environment. Strong, intelligent, with good bone, and very hardy, wild horses can be trained to do anything their domestic cousins do. Wild burros are gentled and often trained for livestock guardians, riding, packing, and driving. These lovable animals make wonderful companions for horses. To learn more about adopting and training the wild horses and burros, please visit us at the Breed Revelation. For more information about the program, please visit www.blm.gov

Add their fine qualities of stamina and sure-footedness and you have an animal that excels in many disciplines, including working equitation, endurance, driving, cow work, and dressage. Breyer Horses and movies such as Disney’s Spirit have been made about the Kiger.
