I guess I am the rarity, but as a dressage rider that loves friesians, I am very excited about the promotion of a more athletic ridable horse that has a more uphill balance. The heavier horses are beautiful to look at but they are not ideal for riding.The same sort of thing has happened with the hanoverians. I was looking at some of the older stallions ..early 1900s, mid 1900s and these were BIG horses ie Gifted ect. They are not ridable for most women and most amateur riders. And with the friesians, the haevier types also tend to be downhill and almost too thick through the poll, which both contribute to problems under saddle. I think beauty and type is important, but so is usefullness. I think the friesian has alot to offer as a dressage mount, but they need to move in the modern direction in order to become competative.
