East Friesian - horses for sale
The East Friesian is an impressive horse of German origin which evokes the high days of coaching and carriage driving. This heavy warmblood was first developed in the north-west regions of Germany, East Frisia (Ostfriesland) and the Duchy of Oldenburg. Today, it is an important heritage breed, and purchasers who buy an East Friesian include police forces, professional carriage driving companies, and the Household Cavalry. The success of the breed today is due to the skill and vision of its breeders, who can sell an East Friesian because they understand the needs of their clients. Their skill is built on centuries of accumulated knowledge since East Frisia and Oldenburg have long been the home of exceptional horse breeders.

Use and characteristics of the East Friesian
East Friesians, known in German as Ostfriesens, stand between 15.2 hands (62 inches/152 cm) and 16 hands (64 inches/165 cm) high. Their coat colours are generally described as “conservative”, being mainly black, dark bay and brown. These reflect the popular colours for coach and carriage horses in the early twentieth century, which is the goal of the breeders who sell an East Friesian. While other coat colours including grey and chestnut do occur, the horses tend to have few white markings other than a star or small sock. Their combination of elegance and power is a winner for carriage drivers and equestrians who buy an East Friesian.
